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.

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.
