Another year in the books! Have a great summer and best of luck to my rising 6th graders! I look forward to meeting my new class in August! Remember to read, read, read!
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 20 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 29 years. I graduated from UNC-Greensboro.
Reading is my favorite hobby and I try to instill that in my students.
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
- 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
- Ear buds and computer mouse (optional for both)
- Reusable water bottle
I usually have plenty of pencils, loose-leaf paper, highlighters, and glue sticks.
If you need help finding any items, please let me know.

Johnston County Public Schools is always striving to provide students and families with exemplary service. In most cases, school bus transportation is essential for many students to access a quality education. In order to meet our daily goal, it is necessary to implement change that enhances and improves our overall operation. As we prepare for the 2022-2023 school year, JCPS Transportation Services and School Nutrition will be hosting a Summer Information Fair at each high school.
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.
The Johnston County Board of Education voted unanimously to approve the 2022 Johnston County Public Schools salary schedule at their regularly scheduled Dec. 14 meeting.
