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.
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.
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
