I am a 1991 North Johnston graduate and while in private business, began coaching in the basketball program at North Johnston in 2006. I began coaching in the softball program in 2011 and after going back to college and earning my Bachelors Degree I began teaching in 2015, originally teaching World History and Civics & Economics.  I was the head basketball coach from 2016-2019 and have been the head softball coach since 2015. I currently teach American History I and II, Civics and Economics  and AP United States Government.

  • Updated Social Distancing Procedures

    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.
