Degrees and Certifications:

Mrs. Jessica Pennica

I am excited to begin another year of my teaching career. I am proud to be a Meredith Angel where I received my bachelor's degree in Elementary Education. I am also proud to be a 2014 graduate of NCSU with a Master's Degree in Elementary Education with a concentration in Elementary Math. 

I grew up and went to school in the JCS system and I knew then I wanted to teach in such an amazing school system. I have been married for 14 years and have an amazing daughter  and son who play travel softball and baseball. They keep us busy both on and off the field but we wouldn't have it any other way. We enjoy spending time on the ball field but also cherish our trips to the lake with friends and family!

I am excited to be working with you and your family this year to help your child have a successful first grade year at Cleveland Elementary School.
