Mrs. Joy Beaston

Hello! Welcome to my English class! My name is Joy Beaston and I teach English classes ranging from English I to English IV and also Creative Writing. I am a proud graduate of NCSU. This is my ninth year at Cleveland High School. Go Rams! 

I am married to my wonderful husband, Cliff.  I have three children--all married--and two precious grandbabies: Nolan and Presley. You'll probably hear me talk about them from time to time!

I love traveling, reading, gardening, and spending time with family and friends. I also REALLY love all things English! Yes, even grammar. 

I look forward to working with you this semester! I have very high expectations, but we also manage to have a lot of fun. 

My assignments and announcements will not be on this site but will instead be on Google Classroom. You will receive a code to join on the first day of class. Parents may also join.

  • Updated COVID-19 Quarantine Guidance

    There have been significant changes to the Strong Schools NC toolkit that affects the quarantine procedures our staff and students must follow if they are exposed to a positive case of COVID-19. Any student or staff member who is currently quarantined due to an exposure of a positive COVID-19 case may return to school or work tomorrow, unless the close contact is a housemate. We are able to make this adjustment because our district requires masks for all students, staff, and guests.

  • JCPS to Utilize New Website for Bus Updates

    Our district is launching a new portion of our website to further communicate bus delays and replacements with our families. We encourage those who have a student who utilizes our transportation to get to or from school to visit www.johnston.k12.nc.us/busdelays for updates on our school bus routes beginning Tuesday, January 18.

  • ACCESS testing for English Language Learners

    North Carolina schools are required to administer ACCESS for ELLs 2.0 to all students identified as English Learners (ELs) in the spring of each year to determine their progress in learning English. Each student is tested in four areas: Listening, Speaking, Reading, and Writing. This assessment helps us monitor their English language development.

  • Updated COVID-19 Quarantine Guidance

    Our district is continuing to follow the guidance and recommendations from the Johnston County Public Health Department, the CDC, and the Strong Schools NC Toolkit, and we will now adhere to a 5 day quarantine period for students or staff members who tests positive for COVID-19. This is a change from the previous 10 day quarantine time.
