Mrs. Carolyn Kay

My name is Carolyn Kay and I am the Exceptional Children 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 33 years of marriage this September. We have two sons, John and Bill, and a grandson, Ronan. Both boys are Johnston County Public School graduates, a huge factor in their success!

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 implication of those needs. To that end, I absolutely love incorporating technology in 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!

This fall, I will be returning to East Carolina University to obtain my Master's of Education, Special Education with a concentration in Learning Disabilities. As I tell my students, we should never stop learning!

I realize that virtual learning is not ideal for all students. If your student is struggling with a concept and needs extra assistance, please complete the Google Permission Form to schedule a time when we can work together.

I am so excited to be working with your child as I begin my 18th 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!
