Hi! My name is Heidi Joyner and I am the Teaching and Learning Coach at West Smithfield Elementary. I grew up in Colorado and moved to Washington DC after college to begin my teaching career. I taught for 13 years in the Washington DC/ Northern VA area and then moved to Clayton NC, where I taught for 10 more years in first grade. I am excited to work with teachers this year at West Smithfield!

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.
