Ms. Jordan Adams
Welcome friends! My name is Ms. Adams. I have seven years of teaching experience in 1st Grade in Johnston County. I have my Bachelor's Degree in Elementary Education from North Carolina State University. In my years at Polenta, I have taught Dual Language in 1st grade for four years and regular 1st grade for three years. I grew up in Johnston County schools and I love working for the same school system as a teacher. I love watching all of my students grow and learn each year!
