Degrees and Certifications:
Hello, my name is Lisa Skillern and I am excited for the new school year. I have been working in the early childhood field for 20 years and love what I do. I graduated from Western Carolina University with a BA in Birth - Kindergarten. This is my 12th year teaching kindergarten, and 3rd year at Riverwood. My goal is to provide children with the foundation and the tools they need to become successful life-long learners wherever life takes them. My husband and I have 3 sons and we are a military family. I enjoy traveling, shopping and movies. I’m looking forward to a fun, exciting and wonderful school year!
At this time, all traditional high school graduations are still planned for May 29. Graduation ceremonies for Johnston County Early College Academy and Johnston County Career and Technical Leadership Academy will now take place on May 16th, rather than the original date of May 15th.
The Johnston County Board of Education will hold a budget work session on Tuesday, April 27. The meeting will begin at 5:00 p.m. and be held in the Evander Simpson Building in Smithfield.
