Mrs. Amber N. Ellis
I'm so glad that you made it to my class webpage! My name is Mrs. Ellis, and I am so excited to work with this community! I teach second grade at McGees Crossroads Elementary School. My goal is to foster a love for learning in each and every student. I graduated December 2017 with my Bachelors of Science in Elementary Education from East Carolina University. I am excited to work with students, parents, and the community.
I am the oldest of three children; I have a younger sister, and my younger brother who gave me two adorable nephews. I am also married to the love of my life since August 2017. In my free time, I enjoy reading, writing, and spending time with friends and family. Feel free to contact me if you ever have questions or concerns!

At their August meeting, the Johnston County Board of Education voted 4-3 to make face coverings required indoors in all Johnston County Public Schools campuses and on all buses for students, staff, and guests. This updated mask requirement is effective immediately.
The online application for the Johnston County Public Schools Preschool Program is now available. Parents who are interested in the JCPS Preschool Program are encouraged to apply early, as availability is on a first come, first served basis. The application window closes on June 30th.
