Mrs. Elaine Butler


The year has flown by and I have been very fortunate to have worked with an outstanding student teacher from Campbell University. Miss Amy Lucas has been an inspiration to me as I see the future in a beginning music teacher.  I look back on my 30 years and realize that I would not have changed anything.  I recall the memories of traveling from class to class teaching music on a cart.  I recall teaching music classes on a stage.  Some of my favorite memories include working at Gentry Primary and Wayne Avenue Schools in Harnett County.  Returning to Johnston County and working at my own elementary school, Meadow, was very rewarding.  Finally, working at Four Oaks Elementary School has been a pleasure.  I have had the time of my life!
