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 22 years and 17 of those here at West Johnston High School. Go Wildcats!!! I have 2 daughters, Alyssa (20) and Anna (17).
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:

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.
As students in grades K-5 begin returning to school, the curbside locations for free meals will now be located at each middle and high school. The curbside meal locations at our elementary schools will end on Friday, Oct. 2 and will open at the middle and high schools on Monday, Oct. 5.
