Jennifer Cade

3rd Grade

Welcome to a new school year! I am so excited to have your child in my 3rd grade classroom this year, and I am blessed to be given the opportunity to guide your child through many wonderful and fascinating experiences over the next few months. I hope to share with your child my deep love and passion for education with the hope that your child will learn to share in that passion.

Since I am new to South Smithfield Elementary this school year, I wanted to share a few things about myself with you. I live in Four Oaks with my husband, John, and my daughter, Tori. I also have a son, Dalton, who has left the nest to start life as a young adult. In my downtime, I love spending time with my family and enjoy reading, watching movies, going to the gym, and shopping (much to my husband’s dismay).

This is my 23rd year in education. The first 14 years of my teaching career was spent teaching pre-K children, and the last 8 years have been spent in 3rd, 4th, and 5th grade. I can definitely say that 3rd and 4th are my favorites. 

Once again, I am excited that your child is in my class this school year. Please do not hesitate to contact me if you have any questions or concerns throughout the school year. I believe it takes a village to make sure that a child receives the very best education possible. Working together, I believe that we can do that for your child to make this your child's best school year ever!


Best Regards,

Jennifer Cade
