Hello!  My name is Laura Makey and I am honored to be a part of the Dynamic Dolphin family!  This is my second year as principal of this wonderful school , but my 23rd year as an educator in Johnston County Public Schools.  I have experience in both the elementary and secondary school settings as well as the central office.  I am a proud graduate of East Carolina University, the University of South Carolina and the University of North Carolina at Wilmington.

 

It is my goal and my mission, each and every day, to do what is in the best interest of the students of South Smithfield.   Our students are the most remarkable students in all of Johnson County and they deserve only the BEST!  When I was blessed with the honor of becoming the Lead Learner of this school, I stated to all that this is not MY school, but OUR school!  I believe that with all of my heart and I believe that together we can make anything happen!  

 

Welcome to South Smithfield Elementary School, home of the Dynamic Dolphins!!

Welcome to South Smithfield Elementary school home of the Dynamic Dolphins! I am Carson Cataliotti and I am excited and honored to be serving as your assistant principal for the 2019-2020 school year. This is my third year serving in this role and my twelfth year in education with Johnston County Public Schools. Prior to serving as a school administrator I taught first grade for eight years, five of those years here at SSE. I love serving a school in the community where I live.  I received both my undergraduate degree and graduate degree from East Carolina University. Go Pirates!!!  

My husband, Joe, and I have been married for 10 years and have three kids Reaves (8), Hayes (6) and Wells (1), They are our pride and joy. Our older two boys attend South Smithfield Elementary.

I believe that being an educator is my calling and truly enjoy serving our staff, students and their families. My motto I live by: “People don’t care how much you know until they know how much you care.” -Theodore Roosevelt  I look forward to working with all South Smithfield Elementary stakeholders this year!
