Mrs. Tonya Painter
I was born and raised in the wonderful state of North Carolina. At the age of five, loving learning and my kindergraten teacher,Mrs. Hunt, at Garner Elementary School, I decided I wanted to be a teacher. I continued to enjoy school and never changed my mind about what I wanted to be when I grew up. I graduated from Clayton High School and began studying Elementary Education at East Carolina University. After college graduation, I began teaching in Johnston County and have been here ever since. This will be my seventeenth year teaching. I am married to my high school sweetheart and we have a middle school aged son.
