Hello! This is my first year teaching at East Clayton Elementary and I love the parental involvement! It has been amazing seeing first hand the community support at this school, and how everyone is so welcoming. I grew up in (Motown) Detroit, Michigan, one of my heart strings is with Detroit, the music, food, culture, but my heart is not with the cold. I received my Bachelor's Degree from Upper Iowa University through a full scholarship program. I later moved to Memphis, Tennessee where I completed my Master of Science Degree in Education from the University of Memphis. I taught school with Memphis City Schools for sixteen years. I later relocated to North Carolina in 2017, as I have relatives in Cary, Greensboro, Tabor City, Parkton, Fayetteville, and Whiteville, N.C. and wanted to be more near family. Some of the places I have traveled are: France, Italy, Spain, Ireland, Dominican Republic, Barbados, Netherlands, and Mexico. I enjoy learning about other cultures. I have a son, Eugene who is a honor graduate from Middle Tennessee State University, and is now an Industrial Systems Engineer. I love teaching and I believe effective learning requires a collaboration between teacher, students, and parents grounded in mutual respect and trust. My hobbies are: Walking, painting, diy projects, cooking( I can cook Chinese and French food) reading, horseback riding and just having a relaxing time.
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.
