Mrs. Jennifer Lancaster

Hello! My name is Jennifer Lancaster. I am from Wayne County where I graduated from Charles B. Aycock High School in 1991. I attended East Carolina University as a NC Teaching Fellow and graduated in 1995 with my degree in K-6 Elementary Education. I have been married to my husband, Eric, for 23 years, and we have three daughters - Christina (18) is attending Appalachian State University, Corrie (13) is in 8th grade at Wayne Christian, and Madison (10) is in 5th grade at Wayne Christian. We have two pets, a beagle named Angel Cake and a cat named Charger.  We enjoy traveling to the mountains, riding the golf cart around our neighborhood, and cooking together. This is my 28th year of teaching. I taught in Wayne County for 26 years, 3 years in kindergarten and 23 years in first grade. I came to Princeton last October to teach first grade. This is my first full year at Princeton. I am looking forward to having a wonderful, PAWSitive first grade year with my students and their families!
