It is my honor to serve as the Principal of Johnston Elementary. I feel as if I am home because I was a teacher at Johnston and my heart never truly left. Johnston Elementary is a special place with much to be proud – a beautiful facility, an amazing staff and wonderful students. I am pleased to be serving our community as your Principal.

Before coming to Johnston, I served as the AP at both Estes and Glen Arden Elementary Schools. Prior to that, I was the Assistant Principal at Buncombe County Early College High School for three years. 

 Before becoming an administrator, I taught both elementary and middle school for nine years. I have even taught classes at the college level. I feel that my varied experiences have helped me be a more effective administrator because I know what education is like for my students down the road. My experiences have also helped me to realize that my heart is in elementary school.

 On a personal note, I am a Buncombe County native, graduating from Enka High School. I hold both a Bachelor’s and Master’s degree from Western Carolina University. I am the proud mother of a middle-school daughter who keeps me running with all kinds of sports and dance activities. I also have a son who attends Buncombe County Early College and is the actor in the family. When I am not busy with my children’s extracurricular activities, I love to read, scrapbook and travel.

 I have an open-door policy and I welcome you to contact me at any time with your comments or concerns. I also invite volunteers to our school so that our children can reap the benefits of parents and community members who give of their time, talents and resources. Contact our office if you are interested in volunteering.
