Ms. Janice West

I am originally from New Jersey but I have lived in NC since gaduating from the University of North Carolina at Wilmington.  I have over 18 years of teaching experience in a wide variety of settings from preschool aged through high school and adult public health education.  I worked several years at the NC State Laboratory of Public Health and adult vocational education at Dorothea Dix Hospital.  My favorite teaching setting by far is high school. I have two children one in college and the other in high school.  I understand the challenges and rewards of being a parent.  I want each of my students to know that every day is a new day. Your past doesn't make your destiny. Make goals, challenge yourself, see what the world has to offer and be the best that you can be.  Don't worry about what others are doing - just do your best.

It is my goal to provide a variety of opporutnities that promote learning to meet the needs of all students as well as provide leadership opportunities.

    Dear Students, parents and guardians,

    I know we are in some chalenging times right now. I hope to make these coming weeks and months as smooth a transition as possible so that students can finish the school year prepared for what lies ahead. 

    I will be using Google Classroom to post assignments and plan to use an online virtual classroom platform so that students will be able to syncronously communicate for at least 45 minutes daily during the week.

    I will be posting assignments weekly and video conferencing links in Google Classrrom.  All classes (1st, 2nd and 4th blocks) will be using the same Google Classroom.  Students, parents and or guardians may join the new classroom - using the following code: 4qojlpz

    Powerschool grades will not be updated until the Johnston County Board of Education gives us the instructions to update.  


    Please email me at any time if you have questions about assignments.








    All students mustl use the school provided Gmail account to communicate 

    We will use Google Classroom for assignments.

    All students must have their Powerschool username and password and be able to access schoolnet for taking quizzes and tests.
