Dr. Stephanie Jones

Hi!  My name is Stephanie Jones and I am the Literacy Coach here at South Smithfield Elementary.  I began working here in December of 2021 and have come to love the staff and students here!


My Professional Background: 

I received my Bachelor's Degree from Mount Olive College (now the University of Mount Olive) in May 2006.  I was hired to work at Carver Elementary in Wayne County that September and continued to work there for 16 years!  I taught 1st grade my first two years and then moved to 2nd grade where I stayed.  While I was teaching, I obtained my Master's Degree from the University of Phoenix in 2013 and in 2016 I began the journey of getting my Doctorate in Curriculum and Instruction.  I graduated in May of 2022 after a long 5 years of school and writing the longest paper of my life!  I am so happy that I took this path and I hope that one day it will lead me to even greater things!
