Mrs. Jessica Byrd
My name is Jessica Byrd, this is my second year at Dixon Road and in Johnston County schools as a teacher! I am back to the system as I was a teacher assistant in 2006-2008, and I myself attended Johnston County Schools as a student. I graduated from West Johnston. I am married and have two step-daughters and a two year old son. I have taught third grade for most of my career, however I have taught reading intervention and I was a teacher assistant in kindergarten and first grade for several years while attenting East Carolina University. Some interesting things about me are I have been skydiving, and I have auditioned for American Idol. I love butterfinger candy bars, mint chocolate chip ice cream, coffee, playing with my son, and learning new innovative ways to teach and make learning fun.
Please reach me in CLASS DOJO, if youre in my class this year, I have already added you and you are connected! PLEASE CHECK IN WITH ME!
