Mrs. Amanda Carroll
I'm Amanda Carroll. I am orginally from the Boston area and moved to Clayton, NC when I was 7 years old. I graduated from Clayton High School. After high school, I attended East Carolina University where I earned my education degree with a concentration in history. I've been teaching at McGee's since 2005. I have taught 2nd, 3rd, 4th, and 5th. I have two children, a teenager and toddler. My son is in middle school and my daughter keeps us all on my toes. My family also includes our dog Gronk and our cats Katniss and Binx. I am a huge football fan always rooting for my favorite team the New England Patriots and I love reading books. I also enjoy watching movies and shows on Netflix with my family on the weekend. We enjoy trips to Walt Disney World. I enjoy teaching and hope my love for learning is evident to my students.
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.
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.
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.
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.
