Degrees and Certifications:
I received my Elementary Education K-6 degree from UNCW and have since become certified in both Exceptional Children-General Curriculum and Exceptional Children-Cross Categorical.
Welcome to third grade! My name is Jennifer Medlin, and this will be my eighteenth year of teaching. I am so excited to be back in third grade as this is full circle for me; I started my teaching career in third! I have taught second and fourth grades and have also been both a resource and a self-contained Exceptional Children's teacher. During my years as an EC teacher I worked with students in all grades K-5. I attended both UNC and UNCW for college, and I am a HUGE Tarheel fan! I will love all of my babies regardless of team affiliation as most have one living here on "Tobacco Road," but I may try to convert them if their's is not baby blue :) My husband and I have three boys ages 18 and 15 year old twins, and we spend our spare time supporting them at their various sporting events. Our oldest son just moved out to start his college career, so I'm really looking forward to spending my days with 8 and 9 year olds...I'm feeling old! We live here in the neighborhood so you may see me walking to and from school often, and I also see lots of students when I am out walking my rescue dog, Ramsey. I am looking forward to an amazing year in third grade working with students and families. I believe that a successful educational experience is based on a triplicate partnership between teacher, student, and parent.

Every JCPS parent must fill out the Second Semester Choice form to choose either the Virtual Program OR face-to-face instruction for each of their students. The Second Semester Choice form is to be filled out for ALL students in grades PreK-12. If a child is going to participate in face-to-face instruction for the second semester, the parent will be asked to fill out transportation information for the student in the form. A form for each student should be completed by Nov. 30.
Information on social distancing in school settings has been recently updated by the NC Department of Health and Human Services (NCDHHS). Upon receiving information from the NCDHHS, we consulted with the Johnston County Public Health Department on the impact these updates will have on our school system. This ongoing collaboration continues to guide our decision-making as students return to classrooms for in-person instruction.
