Mrs. Carolyn Kay
My name is Carolyn Kay and I am the Exceptional Children's Cross Categorical teacher for grades 7 and 8 here at Swift Creek Middle School. I am certified to teach K-12 Special Education, Middle School Math and ELA, and Elementary Education.
My husband Tim and I will celebrate 35 years of marriage this September. We have two sons, John and Bill. Both boys are Johnston County Public School graduates, a huge factor in their success! I also have 2 grandsons, Ronan and Briggs.
As a proud East Carolina University graduate with a Bachelor of Science degree in University Studies, Pedagogy and Disability Studies, I believe that to address the needs of all students, including exceptional children, an educator must first identify, and secondly, understand the educational implications of those needs. To that end, I absolutely love incorporating technology into the classroom, as it provides a personalized learning experience for all children. It is my belief that this encourages student engagement and helps level the playing field for all students!

I am so excited to be working with your child as I begin my 19th year with Johnston County Public Schools! Please do not hesitate to contact me if you have any questions.
I look forward to a wonderful year! GO WOLVES!
North Carolina schools are required to administer ACCESS for ELLs 2.0 to all students identified as English Learners (ELs) in the spring of each year to determine their progress in learning English. Each student is tested in four areas: Listening, Speaking, Reading, and Writing. This assessment helps us monitor their English language development.
The Johnston County Board of Education is now accepting applications for the Johnston County Community College Board of Trustee position. The deadline to apply for the vacancy is Friday, February 17, 2023.
We hope that you and your student have already noticed some of the exciting new food and meal opportunities we are offering in our cafeterias this school year. Our new options will include more fresh produce, vegetarian options, and opportunities for students to customize their meal choice. These new offerings will be available at both breakfast and lunch.
