Mrs. Lakean Byrd
Welcome to my webpage! I am excited to begin another new year with the amazing students at South Johnston High School. This will be my fifth year as a teacher. I look forward to continuing to work with students and learn from them.
I grew up in the mountains of North Carolina and graduated from Avery High School. The following fall I began my college career at North Carolina State University. Upon graduation, I moved to Harnett County and started my career as a teacher in elementary education. I taught fifth grade for two years before finding my way to South Johnston. I have been blessed with a career that allows me to teach students about agriculture, which is my true passion. Not only am I lucky enough to be able to help students learn about agriculture, but I am also able to advise students in the FFA and help them to learn leadership skills that will follow them throughout their lives.
