Grant Haynes

Instructional Technology Facilitator

Extension: 6152

Email: mghaynes@clevelandcountyschools.org

Growing up, I’ve always had a passion for computers and technology.  As I was going through high school I never thought that this would be the profession I would one day be in.  This has helped enforce the notion with me that we are training students for jobs that don’t even exist yet. I received both Bachelors in Mathematics and Master’s in Educational Media from Appalachian State University.  I have been here at Cleveland Early College since 2016. 

When not working, I enjoy spending time with family and friends outside of work going on random adventures.  I've been married since 2011 to my wonderful wife, Anna, and have a beautiful boy Mac who was born in 2019.  I also enjoy coaching at our CrossFit gym here in Shelby working with different people from around the county.

Email: jhux@clevelandcountyschools.org

 I have 25+ years of experience as a Counselor with 5 years in Agency/Community Mental health before transitioning to a School Counselor with CCS. I started coming to North Carolina from Ohio during my summers in high school in the 1980's, working as a lifeguard and whitewater raft guide in the Nantahala Gorge. The Great Smoky Mountains, WCU and my husband captured my heart giving me some great reasons to make North Carolina my home. I graduated from Western Carolina University with a Bachelor of Science Degree in Psychology with a Minor in Criminal Justice. I completed my Master of Arts in Agency Counseling with an add-on School Counseling certification from Gardner-Webb University. My hobbies include reading, hiking, baking, and family fun activities.


Amy Johnson

Email: aljohnson@clevelandcountyschools.org

I was born and raised in Orlando, Florida and graduated from the University of Central Florida. I have my Master's and Bachelor’s degrees in Exceptional Student Education. I have been working in the field of education for over 18 years. I have taught students in grades K-12, students with mild to severe disabilities, and children with Autism Spectrum Disorders. I love teaching and find it a very rewarding experience. It can be challenging at times, but my philosophy has always been that all students can learn; we as educators just need to find the best way to teach them. On a personal note, I have been married for 17 years and have an eight-year-old little girl and a newfypoo named Biscuit. I have lived in several different states; due to my husband's career, but most recently moved to Kings Mountain and am enjoying exploring the Carolinas.
