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.
I will send reminders about upcoming tests and due dates via Remind. Please send me an email if you would like the information to join our Remind :)
If you have any questions at any time, please feel free to email or call me.
At the November Regular Session Board of Education meeting, the Board voted unanimously to improve safety and security in Johnston County Public Schools by implementing state-of-the-art security systems in each of the district’s schools.
We hope that you and your student have already noticed some of the exciting new food and meal opportunities we are offering in our cafeterias this school year. Our new options will include more fresh produce, vegetarian options, and opportunities for students to customize their meal choice. These new offerings will be available at both breakfast and lunch.
