Ms. Amy Parrish

I am Amy Parrish.  I am a lifelong resident of Johnston County, North Carolina.  I attended Selma Elementary, Smithfield-Selma Junior High School (now Smithfield Middle School), and I am a proud 1993 graduate of Smithfield-Selma Senior High School.  I have one son, Eli, and we reside here in Johnston County.  I enjoy traveling, working concerts at Walnut Creek and Red Hat Amphitheaters and watching/attending various sporting events.

I am excited to return to my alumni beginning in August, 2021. Majority of my teaching experience has been with Johnston County Public Schools. From 2003 until 2011, I taught at Four Oaks Middle School and South Johnston High School, from November, 2011 until June 2012 in Harnett County Schools as an Exceptional Children Program Specialist, from July, 2012 until September, 2018 at Neuse Charter School, and from September 2018 until August 2021 at Selma Middle School.
