Degrees and Certifications:
I am from Raleigh, North Carolina. I attended the University of Mount Olive in Mount Olive, North Carolina and graduated with a Bachelor’s degree in Elementary Education. I have been teaching for nine years. I started my career in Duplin County as a middle school teacher. Since then, I have moved to Johnston County and have been at Polenta for seven years. I have further advanced my teaching skills by completing Math Investigations Cohort Trainings. These seminars allow me to implement creative methods of teaching and instill a love for math in my students. I am also currently pursuing my National Boards of Professional Teaching Standards and AIG Certifications. I am very excited about these certifications, as it will enhance the learning of all my students. I have fulfilled my lifelong dream of becoming a teacher and I am looking forward to a great year!

We are offering a new opportunity for our families this winter break. Parents are invited to sign up to receive holiday meal kits that will be distributed from all of our high school sites. Each meal kit will include seven days of packaged breakfast and lunch meals per child.
Information on social distancing in school settings has been recently updated by the NC Department of Health and Human Services (NCDHHS). Upon receiving information from the NCDHHS, we consulted with the Johnston County Public Health Department on the impact these updates will have on our school system. This ongoing collaboration continues to guide our decision-making as students return to classrooms for in-person instruction.
