Degrees and Certifications:
Bachelor of Arts Secondary English Education Certification: English 9-12
Mrs. Nicole Swanson
Welcome to Clayton High School!
I am in my sixth year of teaching English at CHS and my 16th year of teaching overall. I am a proud graduate of UNC Chapel Hill, where I received my Bachelor of Arts in Secondary English Education. Certified in 9-12 English Education, I began my teaching career in Cumberland County, as my husband was in the Army. After several moves, two children and multiple states later, I stepped away from the classroom. I wanted to support my husband's military career, his soldiers and their families during the post 9/11 deployments.
After my husband's retirement in 2014, my family and I moved back to my home community of Meadow, in southern Johnston County. Although I am a graduate of SJHS, I am enjoying my time as a Comet.

A special called session of Johnston County Board of Education has been called for Thursday, July 29 at 5:00 p.m. in the Evander Simpson Building in Smithfield. The open session portions of the meeting and all announcements will be accessible to the public via the livestream available online.
The deadline is quickly approaching for Johnston County Public Schools families who need transportation for their students during the 2021-2022 school year.

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.
