A Little About Me...

My name is Joanna Pearce.  I serve as the CTE Student Support Specialist for Smithfield-Selma High School!  Before coming to Johnston County, I taught Business Education at both the middle and high school levels.  I also served as a Special Education Teacher.  In 2018, I made the decision to leave the classroom, because I wanted to be able to support students and help them succeed.

In December of 1997, I graduated from Barton College with a BS in Business Administration.  I have worked in many industries, but ultimately decided that teaching was my passion.  I began teaching in August of 1998.

I am married to my soulmate, Keith.  I have two beautiful kids, Leah, 26 and Matthew, 13.   While not at school helping students, I enjoy spending time with my family and traveling to see new things.  I also enjoy fishing and watching sitcoms.

My goal is to help you be successful.  I am here to help students, parents, and teachers, so please reach out to me if you have any questions.
