Degrees and Certifications:
Mrs. Melissa Jacobson
Welcome to Ms. Jacobson's 7th Grade Social Studies class.
A little bit about me
I grew up in the Garner area and graduated from Garner High (GMHS, at the time). I went to UNC for undergrad and earned by Bachelor of Arts in Geography, with minors in History and Sustainability Studies. After undergrad, I attended NCSU and earned my Master of Arts in Teaching. I am certified to teach Middle Grades and High School Social Studies. I have a passion for history, world cultures, and the impacts humans have on their environment. I also have a passion for travel. So far, I have had the privilege of traveling abroad to New Zealand, France, and (most recently) Italy and Greece.

At their August meeting, the Johnston County Board of Education voted 4-3 to make face coverings required indoors in all Johnston County Public Schools campuses and on all buses for students, staff, and guests. This updated mask requirement is effective immediately.
The online application for the Johnston County Public Schools Preschool Program is now available. Parents who are interested in the JCPS Preschool Program are encouraged to apply early, as availability is on a first come, first served basis. The application window closes on June 30th.
