Mrs. Traci Miodusewski
I have been teaching for 12 years and this will be my fourth year at Polenta Elementary. I have taught second through sixth grade and have loved getting to see the progression of learning. I am super excited for my first year in fourth grade. I have a degree in Elementary Education with a concentration in natural sciences from Appalachian State University (Go Mountaineers!). I have received Teacher of the Year in 2014 and 2016 from Creech Road Elementary in Wake County and was a finalist for the 2019-2020 Flame for Learning Award in Johnston County.
I love spending time with my family. I have one daughter and she is 9 years old. I love being outside whether it is at the beach or around the yard you can find me playing or gardening. My favorite snacks are olives, pickles, and beef jerky! My favorite books include the Percy Jackson Series, My Side of the Mountain, and the Harry Potter Series. I love teaching especially challenging students to think of innovate ways to solve problems and connect what we are learning in class to their lives. I look forward to working with our fourth grade super stars this year.
The schedule for the 2019-2020 year will be finalized by the week of August 26th.
The Johnston County Board of Education voted to return all Pre-K and EC-Self Contained students to Plan B, four days per week, beginning on Tuesday, Jan. 19. These students will participate in face-to-face instruction on Monday, Tuesday, Thursday, and Friday, with Wednesday serving as a remote learning day. All other students in grades K-12 will remain on Plan C until Monday, Feb. 1.
Due to Johnston County being designated a “red” county by the NCDHHS, as well as increased quarantines and COVID cases in the school district as reflected on our dashboard, the Johnston County Board of Education voted to have ALL students, including Pre-K and EC self contained, return to remote learning under Plan C, beginning Monday, December 14 through Friday, January 15. Unless the remote learning period is extended beyond January 15th, students will return to the plan that they chose on the Second Semester Choice form on Tuesday, January 19.
On December 8th 2020, the Johnston County School Board of Education voted to return to Plan C (Remote Learning), we would like to provide an update to parents and guardians of options to complete state-mandated End-of-Course (EOC) and Career/Technical Education Post Assessment testing.
