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 15 years.    

My goal is to support students emotionally, academically, & socially while helping to foster their flame for learning!  

Schedule

  • If you are seeking an appointment to see the school counselor, please let me know!  As an elementary school counselor I often see students in classrooms, in small groups, as well as individually.  Feel free to reach out so we can discuss what is in your student's best interest.  I look forward to working with your students.
