Mrs. Nikolette Bennett

This will be my 9th year of teaching in Johnston County Public School. I am so excited to be starting my 3rd year here at Four Oaks Elementary. Last year was full or learning and growth for me and my students.  I love working with all grade levels of kiddos and different subjects!

I moved to North Carolina from Illinois in 2003 with my husband and we love the weather! I am a graduate of ECU with a degree in Special education and I am in the process of getting my Masters in Trauma and Resilience from Condcordia University. I spent 7 years working at West Johnston high school as a teacher’s assistant and 6 at West Smithfield as a Special Education teacher in the Behavior/Emotional Disorder classroom. My husband works at West Johnston High School, he is the Lady Wildcat Basketball & Softball Assistant Coach and he teaches in the Math Department. My husband and I enjoy spending time with our two dogs Myles and Blue in our non-teaching time together.  


Room 143 is happy to welcome Mrs. Amber this school year!


My name is Amber Partin. This is my 2nd school year with Johnston County Public Schools as a Teacher’s Assistant. I previously worked for the State of West Virginia as a Teacher Counselor at an academy for at risk youth and as a Teacher’s Assistant in Upstate New York.

I attended Union Pines High School and graduated in 2005. I then obtained a Bachelor’s of Science in Criminal Justice Administration with a minor in Human Services from the University of Phoenix. I then continued my education with a post-baccalaureate advanced certificate, which specializes in trauma studies and mental health.

I am a proud mother of three children, two dogs, and two cats. I enjoy going to the beach, spending time with my family and friends, and being outdoors. I believe each and every child has the potential to bring something unique and special to the world. I will help our students to develop their potential by believing in them and their futures.
