Degrees and Certifications:
Mrs. Beth Brooks
My name is Beth Brooks. I am a third grade teacher and will be teaching English Language Arts and Social Studies. This will be my 12th year teaching, and my 8th year teaching third grade. My husband and I have made our home in Clayton for 28 years. We have two grown children, a son and daughter, as well as a beautiful granddaughter! The beach is my happy place, but I also love visiting the mountains! At home I enjoy spending time with my family, reading, crochet, and gardening. Teaching is where my heart is, and I am thankful every day for the opportunity to work with my students. My goal is for each of my students to know they are valued, to instill in them a love of learning, and to encourage them to always keep their natural sense of wonder and curiosity.
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.
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.
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.
