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.

  • Beginning of Grade (BOG) Testing Letter

    As your child begins third grade, you will see a concentrated focus in ensuring students can read at or above grade level and are making progress in reading proficiency. The goal is to ensure all third grade students can read, comprehend, integrate, and apply complex texts needed for secondary education and career success. As part of the Read to Achieve law (G.S. §115C-83.1) passed by the General Assembly in 2012, your child will take the Beginning-of-Grade 3 (BOG3) Reading Test to establish a baseline measure of beginning third-grade reading skills. This test will be administered on September 7, 2021.
