Mrs. Jennifer Batten
I am so excited to have your child in my class this year! I am a fourth grade math and science teacher here at Riverwood Elementary. I am an ECU Pirate and I have worked in education in Johnston County Schools for over 13 years.
As a teacher, I believe that learning begins with trust. I will focus on building a strong relationship with each student in order to create a safe and welcoming classroom community based on mutual respect. I believe that learning should be engaging and fun, and I hope to inspire my students to become lifelong learners.
I am married to my wonderful husband Josh, and have two sons, Aaron and Casen. Outside of school I enjoy spending time running, exercising, baking, watching football, and spending time with my family. We love to travel and spend as much time as possible at the beach!
Our district is launching a new portion of our website to further communicate bus delays and replacements with our families. We encourage those who have a student who utilizes our transportation to get to or from school to visit www.johnston.k12.nc.us/busdelays for updates on our school bus routes beginning Tuesday, January 18.
The Johnston County Board of Education voted unanimously to approve the 2022 Johnston County Public Schools salary schedule at their regularly scheduled Dec. 14 meeting.
