Greetings and thank you for stopping by!
The 2020-2021 school year will mark my 3rd year at Clayton High School. CHS is a great place to teach, and I am excited for the opportunity to teach you. Last semester, I taught English 1 and Civics. This semester I will be teaching American History 2.
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 at 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 to 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.
The Johnston County Board of Education will hold a Budget Work Session on Thursday, April 29 at 5:00 p.m. in the Evander Simpson Building in Smithfield.
