Welcome to Foundations of Math 1
This is going to be a very special year!!! It will definitely come with it’s own challenges and celebrations!!! As we begin this year on-line I’d like to start by saying we will survive this opportunity and appreciate the face to face teaching and learning experiences even more than before. So who am I and what is my why???
I am a Johnston County native. I graduated from South Johnston High, went to Johnston Community College and then obtained my Bachelorś degree from Campbell University. I taught at Four Oaks Middle for 10 years and then went to Clayton High to teach high school for 4 years. I got married and we welcomed our daughter, Caroline. I stayed home with her until she turned 3 (last year) and came back to SSS. So this is my second year at SSS but I have been in JCPS since 2003.
My husband and I have our almost 4 year daughter and now we have recently welcomed a little puppy to our home. She is 5 months old and is a designer breed - maltese and shihtzu mix. Her name is Lilly and she looks just like a teddy bear. We enjoy going to the beach.
I love to teach! It is my heart and my passion. I love being in the classroom and I can not wait to have my classroom full of students. On-line teaching is not the same but I’m learning and adjusting as I go. I want everyone to succeed and to enjoy my class so I work really hard to make that happen.
Every JCPS parent must fill out the Second Semester Choice form to choose either the Virtual Program OR face-to-face instruction for each of their students. The Second Semester Choice form is to be filled out for ALL students in grades PreK-12. If a child is going to participate in face-to-face instruction for the second semester, the parent will be asked to fill out transportation information for the student in the form. A form for each student should be completed by Nov. 30.
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.
