Mrs. Speight

I am from Raleigh, North Carolina. I attended the University of Mount Olive in Mount Olive, North Carolina and graduated with a Bachelor’s degree in Elementary Education. I have been teaching for seven years.  I started my career in Duplin County as a middle school teacher.  Since then, I have moved to Johnston County and have been at Polenta for five years.  I have taught third grade all five years.  I have further advanced my teaching skills by completing Math Investigations Cohort Training seminars in order to share creative methods of teaching a love for math in everyday life!  I have fulfilled my lifelong dream of becoming a teacher and I am looking forward to a great year!
