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!
