Mr. Carlos Pineda
Let me introduce myself. My name is Carlos Pineda and I am one of the sixth grade Social Studies teachers at Swift Creek Middle School. I am originally from San Antonio, Texas, but traveled extensively during my childhood. I come from a military family background and also served in the military after high school. I lived in Atlanta, Georgia for 17 years before moving to North Carolina in the summer of 2013. I am married and have 3 daughters plus I am a grandfather to 9 grandchildren. I received my BS in Education from Shorter University in Rome, Georgia. Besides my passion for teaching social studies, writing is my favorite past-time. I have self-published a book titled, “Honor Thy Daughters, A Fathers Story of a China Adoption” in 2008 about our adventures in China. I also illustrated a Children's book. I look forward to meeting all the students and parents this coming school year.
While face masks are still required in all of our indoor facilities, students, staff, and guests of our campuses are no longer required to wear a face covering when outdoors. Students and staff may continue to wear masks when participating in recess or outdoor activities if they choose to do so.
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.
