Mrs. Stephanie Morse

Hello! My name is Stephanie Morse and I LOVE teaching and to be organized and creative.  I grew up in New York and graduated from Roberts Wesleyan College with a dual certification in general and special education.  After graduation, I moved to North Carolina to pursue my teaching career.  This is my 14th year teaching at McGee’s Crossroads Elementary.  I taught first grade for 8 years and this is my 6th year teaching second grade.  I absolutely love second grade and I am blessed to be here!  I have a sweet husband named Ryan.  He is also a teacher!  He teaches third grade at West Smithfield Elementary.  We have two little boys who are full of energy and love.  Jax is a second grader and Colton is in Kindergarten.  Our home would not be complete without our two dogs, Miley and Twixey!  Although I grew up in New York, my family has “followed” us South.  We are blessed to have them all near us!  My favorite color is bright pink and I love to collect books and everything leopard print.  I am passionate about education and I love for my students to believe in themselves and to read, READ, read!

  • 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.

  • 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.

    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.
