With a sense of commitment to the children and citizens of Johnston County, Terri Sessoms announces her candidacy to run for a seat on the Johnston County Public Schools Board of Education.
As a retired educator from the Johnston County Schools, Sessoms brings her love of all children, their families, and the citizens of Johnston County. She believes that her 32 years of experience in public education as an award winning teacher, leader, and national consultant can help Johnston County continue to be a place where people are proud to reside, raise families, and do business.
Sessoms brings a successful working knowledge of classroom best practices, effective school leadership, school budget, facilities maintenance, community partnerships and parent involvement. Serving as both a national curriculum consultant and a teacher on loan throughout the state has provided valuable curriculum and leadership expertise that she would like to contribute as she serves those who work with our students.
Fulfilling her roles as Johnston County Schools Teacher of the Year (Flame for Learning) and the NC PTA Outstanding Teacher of the Year has given her a county and statewide perspective on how to support families, educators, and children as they advocate for successful schools within our communities.
“Johnston County has been so good to me throughout the years, that I want to give back through my service to our greatest natural resource, our children and the people who work with them every day. I believe our greatest legacy is to help every child succeed so they become citizens who build strong communities of the future. said Sessoms.”
