Welcome to 2nd Grade!
Hi, I’m Ms. LaMunyon!
Teaching is an absolute passion of mine! I am so excited to work with you and your child! It’s going to be a year full of fun, learning, and lots of adventures. I can’t wait to see what the year has in store for us! The first day of school is August 17th. I look forward to meeting you all during Meet the Teacher Night. Before we meet, I thought you may like to know a little bit about me...
I am a mom of two. My son, Jake, is 20 and my daughter, Lauren, is 18 and they are pretty spectacular! I spend most of my time with my family and friends, but some hobbies that I enjoy are reading, playing games, and cooking!
This will be my 7th year teaching and my 4th year at McGee's Elementary! Prior to becoming a mom, I served in the United States Army for four years. After the military, I decided to stay at home with my children. Once both kids were in school, I went back to school and became a teacher. I absolutely LOVE teaching!
It is my goal to instill a love for learning and reading in my students. We will be focusing on growth mindsets this year. As explained by Carol Dweck, having a growth mindset means that your child will “believe that their most basic abilities can be developed through dedication and hard work—brains and talent are just the starting point.” I want to help your child believe in their own abilities and that, even if something presents a struggle, they realize it isn’t something they simply cannot do, but it is something they cannot do YET and will be a goal that they will eventually accomplish.

Due to Johnston County being designated a “red” county by the NCDHHS, as well as increased quarantines and COVID cases in the school district as reflected on our dashboard, the Johnston County Board of Education voted to have ALL students, including Pre-K and EC self contained, return to remote learning under Plan C, beginning Monday, December 14 through Friday, January 15. Unless the remote learning period is extended beyond January 15th, students will return to the plan that they chose on the Second Semester Choice form on Tuesday, January 19.
