Mrs. Jennifer Welch

Hi!  My name is Jennifer Welch, and I am a 4th grade ELA and Social Studies teacher.  I have 12 years of teaching experience, and have taught K, 1st, 2nd, and 4th grades. I also have my AIG credentials from Johnston County.  

My husband, Jason, and I are both from Florida and attended Florida State University together.  We moved to Clayton in 2011 from Savannah, GA.  We have two girls - Peyton and Taylor.  Our two black labs, Jeb and Jackson, complete our crew.  Our girls are both very active with softball, and we love watching them play.  

Odds & Ends:  My favorite color is red, and I love to read!  I collect things with anchors and arrows.  I love monograms, and mason jars.  The mountains are my favorite place to visit, and our family loves camping and spending time outdoors.  We also love sports, and playing with the dogs. 

My classroom is my "happy place", and I truly can't imagine spending my days any other way than working with awesome kiddos in the classroom. I'm looking forward to a fun and fabulous school year here at River Dell!  Go Racers!

  • Missing or Damaged Library Books

    Every summer many students go off on vacation before turning in all of their library books. We encourage students and their families to bring in missing library books over the summer as soon as the items are found to prevent possible loss or damage and to allow the media center to complete the end-of-the-year inventory. Click here to view your library account status to see if you have any overdue/missing items.
