Sinyard, Alyska - School Psychologist

Mrs. Sinyard & her husband celebrating her citizenship!

Hi there JES families!

My name is Alyska Sinyard and I am honored to be serving as Johnston Elementary's School Psychologist. This is currently my third year with Buncombe County Schools and my first year as a Mighty Bear!

I graduated from the University of North Carolina at Asheville, with a major in Psychology and a minor in Sociology. While at UNCA, I was a proud member of the Cross Country and Track & Field teams. I graduated with my Specialist in School Psychology degree from Western Carolina University.
In my free time, I enjoy spending time with my three dogs, cat, and husband. We are an active family, spending a lot of time outside or in the gym.

I look forward to working with your children. As I split my time between several Buncombe County Schools within the Erwin district, email is my preferred method of contact. Feel free to reach me at if you have any questions.

My office hours during our virtual learning days are 10:30am-2:30pm.
