Ms. Laura Miller
Hello my name is Laura Miller and I am a Kindergarten teacher at Polenta Elementary School. I was born and raised in Garner, North Carolina. I then attended UNCW and graduated in 2015 with my Bachelors degree in Elementary Education. This year will be my sixth year as a teacher and also my sixth year at Polenta. I have taught four years in second grade and one year in Kindergarten. I love working with the younger groups and creating that strong foundation and love for learning. I value strong classroom community and promote kindness among our classmates.

Information on social distancing in school settings has been recently updated by the NC Department of Health and Human Services (NCDHHS). Upon receiving information from the NCDHHS, we consulted with the Johnston County Public Health Department on the impact these updates will have on our school system. This ongoing collaboration continues to guide our decision-making as students return to classrooms for in-person instruction.
