Degrees and Certifications:
Mrs. Julie Collins
Welcome to first grade! This is my 8th year at Benson Elementary. I have taught students in Cumberland, Wake, and Johnston County for 20 years. By far, Johnston County is my favorite! I am a graduate of UNC at Pembroke and received my Masters Degree from Grand Canyon University. My husband and I have two children and live in Benson with our 3 rescued dogs.
While face masks are still required in all of our indoor facilities, students, staff, and guests of our campuses are no longer required to wear a face covering when outdoors. Students and staff may continue to wear masks when participating in recess or outdoor activities if they choose to do so.
The online application for the Johnston County Public Schools Preschool Program is now available. Parents who are interested in the JCPS Preschool Program are encouraged to apply early, as availability is on a first come, first served basis. The application window closes on June 30th.
