Bachelor's Degree in Elementary Education

Mrs. Malisa Jones

I graduated East Carolina University with a Bachelor's Degree in Elementary Education with a concentration in Reading.  This is my seventh year teaching and it is my sixth year at Polenta Elementary.  I have taught 3rd grade for 4 years and first grade for 2 years. I am very excited to be in first grade again this year.  I am passionate about reading and strive to instill a love of reading and learning in every child.  I am pleased to be working with your child this year and look forward to seeing them succeed in 1st grade. 

A Little About Me: 

I am married and have 3 teenage daughters. I have 2 dogs named Duke & Bandit. When I'm not working, I enjoy spending time with my family, reading, gardening, and going to the beach. Some of my favorite things are coffee, chocolate, flowers, and children's books.
