I began my teaching career in Virginia 18 years ago where I taught first grade in Roanoke, VA for four years. I then began teaching in Cloverdale, VA with Botetourt County Schools where I taught fifth grade, third grade and second grade. During the summer months I worked on math curriculum development and created questions for math benchmarks for Botetourt County. I also served on the leadership team to aide in the decision making process for the school's improvement plan. In June of 2015 I moved to Clayton, North Carolina and continued my teaching career with Johnston County Schools at Polenta Elementary. In Johnston County, I have been a part of the Math Investigations Cohorts for 2nd grade and 5th grade. I also have partnered with NC State to collect data for a math research project entitled Project AIM. Additionally, I have mentored Sophmores, Juniors and Seniors from NC State to complete their elementary education course requirements.
Johnston County Public Schools is now offering a Substitute Teacher Temporary Incentive Pay Plan for substitutes.
At their August meeting, the Johnston County Board of Education voted 4-3 to make face coverings required indoors in all Johnston County Public Schools campuses and on all buses for students, staff, and guests. This updated mask requirement is effective immediately.
