Mrs. Courtney Barefoot
My name is Courtney Barefoot. I live in Benson with my husband and our son. I grew up in the Benson/Meadow community and I'm so glad to be a teacher at Meadow School. I attended the University of Mount Olive where I received my bachelors degree in Early Childhood Birth - Kindergarten, and I have been a prek teacher for 10 years. I absolutely love working with children, helping them learn and grow - and most importantly have fun. I'm so excited for our school year. If you have any questions or concerns, please email or call me!

Information on social distancing in school settings has been recently updated by the NC Department of Health and Human Services (NCDHHS). Upon receiving information from the NCDHHS, we consulted with the Johnston County Public Health Department on the impact these updates will have on our school system. This ongoing collaboration continues to guide our decision-making as students return to classrooms for in-person instruction.
