Get ready for a fun and exciting year of learning!!!

 

 

About me:

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 33 years.  The last 19 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 28 years.  I graduated from UNC-Greensboro. 
Reading is my favorite hobby and I try to instill that in my students. 

This year, I will be teaching ELA, Social Studies, Math, and Science with my class. 

  •  5th Grade Supply List:

    We ask that you make sure your student has their own personal supplies due to our current health concerns regarding Covid.

    • Bookbag, without wheels, please
    • Two 1-subject spiral notebooks for Math
    • Two Composition notebooks-one for ELA and one for Science (does not have to be the typical black and white marbled-any color or design is fine)
    • Loose-leaf notebook paper (throughout the year)
    • Kleenex & Paper Towels
    • Scissors
    • Glue Sticks
    • Colored pencils
    • Hand sanitizer (2 bottles)
    • Hand soap (regular, no special fragrances)
    • Clorox or Lysol brand wipes, labeled for Human Coronavirus
    • Expo Markers
    • Highlighters
    • Pencils
    • Ear buds and computer mouse (optional for both)
    • Reusable water bottle
    • Mask 

    I usually have plenty of pencils, loose-leaf paper, highlighters, and glue sticks. 

    If you need help finding any items, please let me know.

  • 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.
