Third Grade Teacher

Miss Jennifer Schenker

Welcome to 1st 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-four years, all in Johnston County School.  I taught Second Grade  at Selma Elementary and then transferred to Polenta Elementary to be closer to home.  I have previously taught Second Grade and Third Grade here at Polenta. I am excited about being in First Grade this year!  I hope your child is ready to  learn, work hard, and succeed!  I look forward to a great year!
