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.
This school year, information regarding the current week as well as upcoming due dates, notes, Quizlets, and other useful resources can be found on Google Classroom.
Information about Classroom Email Summaries for parents can be found here.
As the school year starts, I'll post the link join our class on Remind and get reminders directly to your phone (for parents and students!).
If you have any questions at any time, please feel free to email or call me.

Johnston County Public Schools is always striving to provide students and families with exemplary service. In most cases, school bus transportation is essential for many students to access a quality education. In order to meet our daily goal, it is necessary to implement change that enhances and improves our overall operation. As we prepare for the 2022-2023 school year, JCPS Transportation Services and School Nutrition will be hosting a Summer Information Fair at each high school.
