Ms. Stephanie Easley
I am so excited to be your first grade teacher this year. I’ve been at Polenta Elementary for six years and taught in another county for two years prior to that. I have experience teaching kindergarten, first grade and second grade. I graduated from East Carolina University in 2007 where I received my bachelor's in Elementary Education. I am passionate about developing a love of learning in small children. With the assistance of my administration team and colleagues, I feel positive that your child will enjoy learning from home this year.

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.
