Degrees and Certifications:
Hi everyone! My name is Cortney D'Ercole. I'm 30 years old, engaged, and have a beautiful little girl named Kennabelle! I graduated from Wesley College in Dover, Delaware with a Bachelor's degree in Elementary Education and a concentration in Math. Prior to teaching at Riverwood, I was a Pre-Kindergarten teacher for two years and a paraprofessional at a school for children with special needs. I have always wanted to be an Elementary teacher and my dream has finally come true! My goal as a teacher is to provide my students with a fun, positive, and inspiring learning environment that will encourage them to develop a true love for learning! Having this job really is a dream come true and I am so lucky to be working at such an awesome school!

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.
Johnston County Public Schools is participating in the Test to Stay Program, a voluntary study with Duke University and the ABC Collaborative. Due to that participation our students now have more options if they are deemed a close contact to a positive COVID-19 case while at school.
