About Me-This is my fourteenth year teaching here at McGee’s Crossroads Elementary School. I have lived in Johnston County most of my life. I attended South Johnston High School and graduated from Lees-McRae College in 2007. I was then able to study abroad in Costa Rica and Italy, as well as work in Washington, D.C. In addition to my travels, I earned my Master's in Reading Instruction and Curriculum and Design in 2010.
It is my mission to instill a love for learning in my students. I attempt to teach with a passion for my subjects so that my students develop a desire to become lifelong learners. Please let me know if you have any questions or concerns. It is so important to keep communication open between us. I look forward to a great year together!
At the November Regular Session Board of Education meeting, the Board voted unanimously to improve safety and security in Johnston County Public Schools by implementing state-of-the-art security systems in each of the district’s schools.
We hope that you and your student have already noticed some of the exciting new food and meal opportunities we are offering in our cafeterias this school year. Our new options will include more fresh produce, vegetarian options, and opportunities for students to customize their meal choice. These new offerings will be available at both breakfast and lunch.
