About the Teacher
I graduated from the University of Indianapolis with a Bachelor's degree in Elementary Education. I taught at West Clayton Elementary for four years. I then moved to Polenta Elementary when it opened, where I have taught for eighteen years. Most of that time, I taught 4th grade. In 2002, I completed my National Board certification. In 2009, I graduated from East Carolina University with a Master's degree in Science Education.
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.
The online application for the Johnston County Public Schools Preschool Program is now available. Parents who are interested in the JCPS Preschool Program are encouraged to apply early, as availability is on a first come, first served basis. The application window closes on June 30th.
