Mrs. Dolores J. Barrett
I am very much looking forward to what the 2019-2020 school year has in store for the Johnston County Public Schools system. I am very proud to be a member of the "SSS Spartan Family," ("Once a Spartan, Always a Spartan!"), as I begin my 21st year of teaching at Smithfield-Selma High School.
I am a 1980 graduate of Youngstown State University, located in Youngstown, Ohio. I hold a Bachelor of Music in Education degree from the Dana School of Music, with my certification area being Music k-12. Upon my graduation from YSU, I taught Instrumental Music at Cardinal Mooney High School, also located in Youngstown. I am a very proud veteran, having served on active duty in both the United States Air Force and the United States Navy. While serving in the U.S. Armed Forces, I received training in the field of Electronics, and have had many opportunities to travel stateside, as well as overseas. I reentered the field of Education in 1999, during which time I began teaching Vocal Music at SSS. In addition to Vocal Music, I also teach Music Appreciation classes, and am an instructor for Distance Learning (Connexus Links, previously referred to as GradPoint) courses.
Johnston County Public Schools will begin using Here Comes the Bus in the 2019-2020 school year! Here Comes the Bus is a school bus tracking app that gives parents real-time bus location information and alerts to get students to the bus stop on time. The app is expected to roll out by the first day of school, August 26...
