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. I am a proud graduate of NCSU. This is my eighth 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.
At this time, all traditional high school graduations are still planned for May 29. Graduation ceremonies for Johnston County Early College Academy and Johnston County Career and Technical Leadership Academy will now take place on May 16th, rather than the original date of May 15th.
The Johnston County Board of Education will hold a budget work session on Tuesday, April 27. The meeting will begin at 5:00 p.m. and be held in the Evander Simpson Building in Smithfield.
