Ms. Amy Hovermale
My love of teaching began when I was five years old. I had two teachers who were the most influential in my school years. I have been teaching for 32 years. The last 18 of those have been here at McGee's in 5th grade.
I was born in North Carolina, grew up in Granville County, and have lived in Johnston County for 27 years. I graduated from UNC-Greensboro.
Reading is my favorite hobby and I try to instill that in my students.

Every JCPS parent must fill out the Second Semester Choice form to choose either the Virtual Program OR face-to-face instruction for each of their students. The Second Semester Choice form is to be filled out for ALL students in grades PreK-12. If a child is going to participate in face-to-face instruction for the second semester, the parent will be asked to fill out transportation information for the student in the form. A form for each student should be completed by Nov. 30.
Information on social distancing in school settings has been recently updated by the NC Department of Health and Human Services (NCDHHS). Upon receiving information from the NCDHHS, we consulted with the Johnston County Public Health Department on the impact these updates will have on our school system. This ongoing collaboration continues to guide our decision-making as students return to classrooms for in-person instruction.
