Degrees and Certifications:
Hello Parents & Students! I am very excited to be working with our ESL students full-time this year! I am originally from Canada but I have lived in a number of countries over the years and I've been blessed to experience many different cultures & languages during this time. Professionally, I spent 12 years teaching Spanish at East Clayton Elementary, English as a Second Language for 9 years throughout Latin America, 3 years in the USA teaching English to learners of other languages, and my teaching career all started in the Canadian Arctic, teaching French to Eskimo children. As you can see, languages are definitely my thing!! This will be my 5th year working with the Middle School age group but I can honestly say its the best decision I ever made!! Academically, I got my Bachelor of Arts degree in languages (majoring in French) from Acadia University in Wolfville, Nova Scotia, Canada, my Bachelor's of Education from Mount Saint Vincent University in Halifax, Nova Scotia, Canada and my Master's in International Education from Framingham State University in Framingham, Massachusetts. I look forward to an amazing year - please let me know if I can be of assistance to you in anyway!
At the November Regular Session Board of Education meeting, the Board voted unanimously to improve safety and security in Johnston County Public Schools by implementing state-of-the-art security systems in each of the district’s schools.
We hope that you and your student have already noticed some of the exciting new food and meal opportunities we are offering in our cafeterias this school year. Our new options will include more fresh produce, vegetarian options, and opportunities for students to customize their meal choice. These new offerings will be available at both breakfast and lunch.
