Third Grade Teacher

Miss Jennifer Schenker

Welcome to 3rd Grade.   I hope you have had a fun and restful summer.  Here is a little bit of information about me.  I have been teaching for twenty-two years all in Johnston County School.  I taught Second Grade for six years at Selma Elementary.  I then transfered to Polena Elementary to be closer to home.  I have taught Second Grade at Polenta for ten years.  This will be my sixth year of teaching Third Grade at Polenta. I'm looking forward to another wonderful year full of learning and fun.
