Ms. Christy Barbour
My name is Christy Barbour. I am a 1990 graduate of South Johnston High School and a 1993 graduate of Campbell University with a BS in Home Economics. I have been teaching Foods and Nutrition for 24 years and 19 of those here at West Johnston High School. Go Wildcats!!! I have 2 daughters, Alyssa (22) and Anna (18).
I LOVE teaching Foods classes!! I tell my students from the beginning that I am not a CHEF.....I am a "COOK"! I have no culinary background other than the knowledge I have gained through teaching Foods and Nutrition classes. I love to cook and I love sharing my knowledge with my students to help them be successful in the kitchens, because we all have to eat....right? It is amazing to see the pride that bursts from students when they prepare a food from scratch!!
In my spare time, I love working in my yard and I love spending my summers at the beach!
Hope everyone had a great summer! I am looking forward to meeting and working with you this semester. Here is the fall schedule and classroom codes:

At their August meeting, the Johnston County Board of Education voted 4-3 to make face coverings required indoors in all Johnston County Public Schools campuses and on all buses for students, staff, and guests. This updated mask requirement is effective immediately.
The online application for the Johnston County Public Schools Preschool Program is now available. Parents who are interested in the JCPS Preschool Program are encouraged to apply early, as availability is on a first come, first served basis. The application window closes on June 30th.
