Ms. Barbara Haley

 

About Me:  I am the third grade virtual teacher this semester.   I am in my 18th year of teaching at West Smithfield Elementary.  I started teaching for JCPS when this school opened in 2003. 

 

I love photography, walking and animals.  I have two adult children.  My daughter will be teaching French at a middle school in the Boston area this fall.  My daughter is also a graduate of West Smithfield Elementary.  My son has started his third year of teaching biology at a high school here in Johnston County.  Both my children attended Smithfield Middle School and SSS High School and they both graduated from NCSU.  I am rooted in this community.

 

I love the eagerness students exhibit when they are engaged in learning.  I know that we will face challenges learning virtually this semester, but I believe that we will meet those challenges together.  I also believe learning is a lifelong endeavor.  I will be learning right along with you.  

School Announcements

  • Beginning of Grade (BOG) Testing Letters

    As your child begins third grade, you will see a concentrated focus in ensuring students can read at or above grade level and is making progress in reading proficiency, so they can read, comprehend, integrate, and apply complex texts needed for secondary education and career success. As part of the Read to Achieve law (G.S. §115C-83.1) passed by the General Assembly in 2012, your child will take the Beginning-of-Grade 3 (BOG3) Reading Test to establish a baseline measure of beginning third-grade reading skills. This test will be administered within the first 20 days of face to face instruction, October 26 - November 23, 2020

  • 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.
