MAT Elementary Education
My name is Stephanie Perkins and I am a first-year kindergarten teacher at Glendale-Kenly Elementary. I grew up in Columbia, Maryland with my parents and two younger siblings. I earned my bachelor's degree in Recreation, Parks, and Tourism from West Virginia University in June 2015. I spent approximately two years working as an intern the US Forest Service, where I lived in Oregon, Washington State, and Vermont. While I worked in the Pacific-Northwest, my family moved to Wilmington, NC (in June 2015). In January of 2017, I moved back to Wilmington and began work as a Medical Records Auditor for a local data management company.
In 2019, I was accepted to UNCW's accellerated MAT Elementary Education program and graduated with my degree in Dec 2020.
Upon graduation, I was immediately welcomed into the GKE family! I joined GKE in January 2021 as the fifth-grade virtual teacher. Since then, I have also worked as a lead teacher in a first-grade classroom during the Johnston County Summer Learning Program. I am delighted to work as a kindergarten lead teacher and look forward to the many new opportunities/discoveries that we will make during the 2021-2022 year.

Johnston County Public Schools is always striving to provide students and families with exemplary service. In most cases, school bus transportation is essential for many students to access a quality education. In order to meet our daily goal, it is necessary to implement change that enhances and improves our overall operation. As we prepare for the 2022-2023 school year, JCPS Transportation Services and School Nutrition will be hosting a Summer Information Fair at each high school.
Our district is launching a new portion of our website to further communicate bus delays and replacements with our families. We encourage those who have a student who utilizes our transportation to get to or from school to visit www.johnston.k12.nc.us/busdelays for updates on our school bus routes beginning Tuesday, January 18.
The Johnston County Board of Education voted unanimously to approve the 2022 Johnston County Public Schools salary schedule at their regularly scheduled Dec. 14 meeting.
