Mrs. Alford

Hi, my name is Jennifer Alford and the 2018-19 school year will be my ninth year teaching at River Dell Elementary. I have taught third grade for eight years and I am looking forward to a new adventure in second grade. I graduated from UNC- Greensboro with a degree in elementary education. I enjoy working with children and helping them reach for their dreams through their education. I believe every child should be valued and treated with respect.  An education should empower a child and help him or her make a positive contribution to our world. My husband and I have two young boys, 2 dogs, 1 horse and a cat. I love trail riding and spending time with family at the beach! 

 

I hope you all have a fantastic summer and I can't wait to meet my new students in August!

    Our Art Teacher, Mrs. Anayiotos, needs our help. She would like to do a Kindness project. The kids will paint rocks with words of kindness. The painted rocks will be placed in a Kindness garden. She needs smooth rocks (at least 1 side needs to be smooth), cans of white paint (used to paint the rocks before the kids paint them), and cans of clear sealer. Thank you for your support!
