Mrs. Tammy Stephenson

I am so excited to be part of the Polenta Elementary 1st Grade Team! This will be my third year teaching. I attended the University of Mount Olive (Yay Trojans!!) and I have a teaching certification from North Carolina Teachers of Tomorrow. I love spending time with my family and love the BEACH and BOOKS!! I am looking forward to spending time getting to know our young Polenta Pumas and helping them expand their academic and social skills. We are going to have a great year! 

I love communication, so do not hesitate to contact me, if you have questions or concerns. It takes a village and I am so happy to be a part of ours!
