Mr. Joseph Panzarella

My name is Joseph Panzarella, and I am your 2022-2023 5th Grade ELA Teacher. This is my 21st year teaching, and I am very excited to take this brand new journey with you.  I am also the Boys Basketball coach and Girls Track coach.


I love music and I play several instruments, including guitar, harmonica, and drums.  I am a huge fan of The Beatles, Bob Dylan, and Tom Petty…(you should check them out on YouTube.)  I have three children who are Johnston County students just like you.  I am also a big WWE fan.  My favorite sport is football, which I played in college, at Kent State University in Ohio.  My teams are the Ohio State Buckeyes and the Cleveland Browns.
