Greetings and thank you for stopping by!
The 2022-2023 school year will mark my 5th year at Clayton High School. CHS is a great place to teach, and I am excited for the opportunity to teach you. This semester, I will be teaching American History.
Before I came to CHS, I worked at Benson Middle. There I taught 5 years in 6th-grade social studies and ELA, one year in 8th-grade social studies, and one year in 7th-grade social studies. Before coming to Johnston County, I worked in Wake County for 9 years in an elementary school setting; 7 years in 5th-grade and 2 years in 4th. There, I taught all subjects as well as electives in history, and assorted creative arts.
I really enjoy teaching any aspect of the social studies curriculum and enabling students the opportunity of expanding themselves. Now, I have some students who are not fond of any form of social studies. My goal is to present to them different aspects in history and hopefully spark more of a tolerance. :) History is not as boring as they think. By having a better understanding of the past, we can improve our future.
In any of my classes, I incorporate reading and writing. My goal is to enable students to think outside the box in their thinking and gain their own unique perspective. By having opportunities to express and explain themselves with words versus emoji or textese, students learn true communication. If an individual can communicate in written form, they can usually communicate orally.

North Carolina schools are required to administer ACCESS for ELLs 2.0 to all students identified as English Learners (ELs) in the spring of each year to determine their progress in learning English. Each student is tested in four areas: Listening, Speaking, Reading, and Writing. This assessment helps us monitor their English language development.
The Johnston County Board of Education is now accepting applications for the Johnston County Community College Board of Trustee position. The deadline to apply for the vacancy is Friday, February 17, 2023.
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.
