Josh Tillett

Welcome students and parents to my page.


My name is Josh Tillett. I was born and raised right up the road in Sanford.  I am a proud 2012 graduate of East Carolina University with a Bachelor of Science degree in Exercise Physiology.  I will be returning to East Carolina this spring to obtain my teaching licensure.  GO PIRATES!!!


I am excited to join the Western Harnett family and I look forward to teaching AP Environmental Science and Earth/Environmental Science.  The AP Environmental Science course is designed to engage students with the scientific principles, concepts, and methodologies required to understand the interrelationships within the natural world.  The course requires that students identify and analyze natural and human-made environmental problems, evaluate the relative risks associated with these problems, and examine alternative solutions for resolving or preventing them.


This is my 2nd year teaching in a public school setting.  I have taught courses for Sampson Early College and Homeschool groups in Sampson County.


Hobbies: Spending time outside with my family especially at the beach, traveling, and I'm a huge fan of college athletics 

Fun Fact: I have watched Forrest Gump over 50 times.
