Mrs. Kimberly Drown
I am excited about beginning my 24th year of teaching during the 2022-2023 school year. I am a native of Asheville, N.C. and made Johnston County and West Johnston High School my home in 2007. I graduated from the University of North Carolina at Asheville in 1996 with a Bachelor of Arts in History, Political Science and International Studies. While working for a multinational corporation, I discovered my love of working with young adults by training them in a workforce readiness program. After receiving Social Studies Education Certification in 1999, I began my teaching career at Brevard High School in beautiful Transylvania County, N.C. In 2008, I completed a Master in Liberal Arts with a concentration in curriculum design. I enjoy spending time with my family in the outdoors. A few of my favorite activities are gardening, hiking, kayaking, biking and swimming. I look forward to working with each WILDCAT and their families during this school year. *Supplies under course tab.

Johnston County Public Schools is always striving to provide students and families with exemplary service. In most cases, school bus transportation is essential for many students to access a quality education. In order to meet our daily goal, it is necessary to implement change that enhances and improves our overall operation. As we prepare for the 2022-2023 school year, JCPS Transportation Services and School Nutrition will be hosting a Summer Information Fair at each high school.
