Degrees and Certifications:
Mrs. Donna DuPraw
I relocated to Johnston County during the summer of 2017 and am excited to be at Polenta. I received a Bachelor of Science Degree in Elementary Education from Florida Gulf Coast University. Throughout my years of teaching, I have taught grades PreK-3rd. I earned an ELL endorsement and Gifted certification. I look forward to working with your child this year to grow and learn!
I have a full-time instructional assistant, Ms. Seagroves. We have worked together for the last 2 years. Ms. Seagroves helps with small groups throughout the day.
We look forward to getting to know you and your child.
Get to know us:
I love the color purple, math, and doing science experiments. I enjoy finding new and creative activities to bring into the classroom. Some of favorite goodies are plain M&M's, Flipz, pineapple, watermelon, water, and Starbuck's caramel iced coffee.
Ms. Seagroves loves the color blue, writing, and reading. Her favorite things are M&M's, Pringles, and Mountain Dew.
Our classroom favorites are scented markers, stickers, clipboards, cardstock, construction paper, bandaids, dry erase markers, and office supplies (staples, paper clips, postit notes).
