Mrs. Teresa Pittman Kirby
Welcome to the 2020-2021 School Year!
Hello! My name is Teresa Kirby. I have been in preschool and elementary education for 20 years. I began my teaching career with a volunteer position in a 4 year old preschool classroom. It was here I really developed a passion for teaching, and returned to college at age 42 to pursue a degree in Elementary Education and Reading K-12 while being a Teacher's Assistant in 1st Grade. I have taught Kindergarten and/or First Grade for the past 10 years.
My roots for Glendale-Kenly Elementary and the Kenly community run deep. I am a graduate of "Kenly" Elementary and North Johnston High School. I have lived in the Kenly area my entire life. Two of my four children attended Glendale-Kenly as well.
I have 4 children; ages 35, 33, 23, and 22. My youngest is a Senior at NC State University. GO PACK!
I have 6 grandchildren ages 7 months to 11 years old (4 boys and 2 girls) who are the center of this "Mimi's" world!
I love to travel to new places every chance I get. My daughters are usually my travel partners because my husband, Curtis, doesn't share my love for traveling. He does enjoy going to the mountains every chance we get, and spending time together with the grandkids.

Every JCPS parent must fill out the Second Semester Choice form to choose either the Virtual Program OR face-to-face instruction for each of their students. The Second Semester Choice form is to be filled out for ALL students in grades PreK-12. If a child is going to participate in face-to-face instruction for the second semester, the parent will be asked to fill out transportation information for the student in the form. A form for each student should be completed by Nov. 30.
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.
