Mrs. Liles

I am so excited to begin the 21-22 school year at West Smithfield Elementary. This is my 11th year teaching and 6th year in Johnston County Public School. I recieved my undergrauate degree from North Carolina State University, in Sociology and a minor in Crimal Justice in 2002. I worked with the homeless population in Wake County, before completing my master's degree. In 2010, I completed my Master's Degree in Elementary Education and began my teaching career. I am originally from Michigan and have lived here in North Carolina for 25 years. We currently live in Garner, where we have lived for the last 4 years. I have been married for 21 years and have 2 children. My oldest son is 15 years old and is a sophomore at West Johnston High School. My youngest son is 11 years old and a 6th grade at Cleveland Middle School. I am looking forward to this school year and getting to know the kids and their families.

  • Updated COVID-19 Quarantine Guidance

    There have been significant changes to the Strong Schools NC toolkit that affects the quarantine procedures our staff and students must follow if they are exposed to a positive case of COVID-19. Any student or staff member who is currently quarantined due to an exposure of a positive COVID-19 case may return to school or work tomorrow, unless the close contact is a housemate. We are able to make this adjustment because our district requires masks for all students, staff, and guests.
