Degrees and Certifications:
Ms. Kristie Strickland
I am a 1988 graduate of Smithfield-Selma High School. I went on to attend Appalachian State University and graduated in 1992 with my degree in Education. I continued my education at Fayetteville State University and graduated in 1998 with a Masters in Special Education. In 2007 I passed my National Boards in EC and then renewed them in 2017. I came back to teach at SSS in 1997 and have been here since. I specialize in the EC Department where we collaborate with stakeholders, parents, and our students on what is the best way for ensuring all students are successful not only in the classroom setting but also when they leave SSS to start a life of their own.
Schedule TBA in January. Enjoy your Winter Break and stay COVID safe.

As we begin planning for the 2021-22 school year, we are seeking feedback from parents to gauge interest in establishing a Johnston County Public Schools Virtual Academy, as an alternative to the face-to-face instruction environment for students. We are asking for your input by completing an online interest survey.
