I am Mrs. Rojas and I am the ESL teacher at Cleveland Middle School and Clayton Middle School. I was born in Puerto Rico, home to beautiful beaches, a festive culture, and amazing food. My parents are from Colombia, land of exotic flora and fauna, home of the Amazon River, and beautiful, happy people. I have been teaching for 17 years, the last 10 years, have been in North Carolina as an EL teacher, and I love it. I have a Bachelor's Degree in Elementary Education with English as Second Language licensure, and hold a Master's Degree from NC State University as a Reading Specialist. I am very happy to teach my wonderful group of English Learners vocabulary, reading, and comprehension skills, among other skills that will help them become successful students. I am very excited to work with your child this year!
At the November Regular Session Board of Education meeting, the Board voted unanimously to improve safety and security in Johnston County Public Schools by implementing state-of-the-art security systems in each of the district’s schools.
We hope that you and your student have already noticed some of the exciting new food and meal opportunities we are offering in our cafeterias this school year. Our new options will include more fresh produce, vegetarian options, and opportunities for students to customize their meal choice. These new offerings will be available at both breakfast and lunch.
