Mrs. Kristie Lawrence
Hello, and welcome to my page! My name is Kristie Lawrence. I am a 2004 graduate of NC State University in Raleigh, N.C. I taught English and Study Skills at Broughton High School before moving to Johnston County to teach middle school Language Arts. I live in Smithfield with my family. My son is in Eighth Grade this year. We enjoy spending time at church, NC State football games, New River National Park in West Virginia, and most importantly, at home! I absolutely adore our Smithfield Community! If you are ever curious regarding what we are working on in class, please send me an email! Or, you may have your student pull up his/her Google Classroom Account! Thanks for visiting and have a fabulous day!
Covid-19 Updates (last updated 3/27/2020)
Hello, students and families! I hope you are all healthy and safe! My family is safe and well. I miss all of you and hope you are all adjusting to our lives without face-to-face interaction accordingly. You are the strongest students I have ever taught, so I trust you will battle through this trying time with your usual sense of humor and sense of perseverance! We can do this! We are all #SSStrong and #JoCoStrong; and, we all have #KnightPride! My family and I are praying for all of you. I will continue to post updates weekly on this website.
