Welcome to my Strings Page! Johnston County Public Schools offers beginning strings classes (violin) to students in 3rd, 4th, and 5th grades. I am honored to be a Strings Teacher!
I teach at eight schools in the county: Meadow School, Benson Elementary, Four Oaks Elementary, McGee's Elementary, Dixon Road Elementary, West Smithfield Elementary, South Smithfield Elementary, and Selma Elementary. I serve all eight schools within each week.
During the first week of school, I visit all of my schools and speak with all 3rd, 4th, and 5th graders. Those students who are interested in the program will receive an information sheet to be completed by a parent and returned to the homeroom teacher. I compile my classes from these forms. I will attach one to this website as well.
During the second week of school, I will send home a note with class day, time, and location.
I hope to begin class by the third week of school!
Parents are responsible for acquiring a violin and music book for their child. The attached information sheet has more details.
Please feel free to email me with any question at all!
Thanks for your interest in the Strings Program!

Information on social distancing in school settings has been recently updated by the NC Department of Health and Human Services (NCDHHS). Upon receiving information from the NCDHHS, we consulted with the Johnston County Public Health Department on the impact these updates will have on our school system. This ongoing collaboration continues to guide our decision-making as students return to classrooms for in-person instruction.
As students in grades K-5 begin returning to school, the curbside locations for free meals will now be located at each middle and high school. The curbside meal locations at our elementary schools will end on Friday, Oct. 2 and will open at the middle and high schools on Monday, Oct. 5.
