Mrs. Emily Thornton
My name is Emily Westbrook Thornton and I am a School Counselor at Four Oaks Elementary. I received my undergraduate and graduate degrees from Campbell University and I have been employed with Johnston County Public Schools for the last 14 years.
My goal is to support students emotionally, academically, & socially while helping to foster their flame for learning!
If you are seeking an appointment to see the school counselor, please let me know! I typically have time to see students and parents throughout the day and look forward to helping you in any way I can.
