Ms. Matilda Storm
I have been a teacher at McGee's Elementary for sixteen years. I am certified in both regular and special elementary education and have taught self-contained, resource, and regular education classes. I grew up in Buffalo, NY and graduated with a bachelor's degree in computer science from SUNY at Buffalo. After working at Eastman Kodak in Rochester, NY as a software engineer for eight years, I decided to stay home to raise my children. Since my heart has always been drawn to teaching, I went back to school to get my master's degree in education from Nazareth College once both my children were in school. Following graduation, my family and I moved to North Carolina. I have many interests, but I especially enjoy reading, learning new things, and asking "why?"

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.
Johnston County Public Schools is participating in the Test to Stay Program, a voluntary study with Duke University and the ABC Collaborative. Due to that participation our students now have more options if they are deemed a close contact to a positive COVID-19 case while at school.
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.
