Degrees and Certifications:
Welcome to Kindergarten!
I am excited to begin the new school year at Micro Elementary. I look forward to seeing some familiar faces and meeting new ones.
I am a Johnston County native and grew up in Pine Level. I graduated from North Johnston High School in 1991 and then attended East Carolina University, graduating in 1995 with a degree in Elementary Education. I recieved my Master's Degree in 2007 in Reading Education from ECU. I began my teaching career in Clayton, NC where I taught first grade for four years. I transferred to Selma Elementary where I taught kindergarten, first, second, and third grade. I taught there for 17 years. I am now teaching kindergarten at Micro Elementary and I love this school!!
I have two children of my own who bring me more joy than you can know. My daughter, Kailey attends NCSU and my son, Wilson attends NJHS.
Teaching your child is a tremendous responsibility and I will do my best to ensure that each student has a safe and motivating learning experience in this upcoming year. However I cannot do this without the help of you, the parents. We are partners in the learning process.
I believe that parent-teacher relationships are necessary for maximum school success. Throughout the year I will communicate through Class Dojo, text, my website, notes, telephone calls, emails, report cards and parent teacher conferences. I encourage you to contact me if you have any questions or concerns at any time.
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.
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.
