Mrs. Janet Kehoe

Hi, I am Janet Brown Kehoe and I am excited to be the principal at Durant Road Elementary School and to be part of the DRES family. Here is a little bit more about me. I am a native of Fayetteville, NC and spent the majority of my adult life in Hope Mills, NC. Before coming to the Wake County Public School System in August of 2015, I served the students and families of Cumberland County Schools for 18 years. I started my teaching career as a Special Education teacher and coach at Douglas Byrd High School. In 2006 I began my administrative career as the assistant principal at Cumberland Road Montessori School in Fayetteville, NC. In May of 2010 I was honored to be named the CCS Elementary Assistant Principal of the year. In June of the same year I received my first principal appointment to William T. Brown Year-Round Elementary School in Spring Lake, NC. I remained there until June of 2013 when I was appointed to be the principal of South View Middle School in Hope Mills, NC.


I have a Bachelor of Science degree in Health/PE from Virginia Commonwealth University in Richmond, VA, a Master of Science degree in Industrial Technology from East Carolina University in Greenville, NC and a Master of Science degree in School Administration from the University of NC at Pembroke in Pembroke, NC.  In my spare time I enjoy running and I am a member of several local running clubs. I am proud to have served the community of Wake County and Durant Road Elementary School for the last three years.  My son, Michael, is a proud member of the US Coast Guard stationed in Alameda, California.  My daughter, Erin, is a recent graduate of North Carolina State University and has a career in student housing management.


I hold a strong growth mindset that all children can learn and grow, that instruction should be individualized and tailored to meet the individual student needs as much as possible, and that teachers should utilize a variety of teaching techniques including hands-on inquiry learning and integration of technology. I strongly support the values of Durant Road Elementary School to work together to embrace diversity and provide a safe, respectful, and nurturing environment where all students and staff will reach their full potential. That our students will achieve personal success in their learning by being provided enriching educational opportunities that advance their unique talents and meet individual needs.
