Degrees and Certifications:
Bachelor of Science - Elementary Education
My name is Jennifer Voliva, and I am a graduate of West Craven High School and East Carolina University. After completing my degree in Elementary Education, I taught 1st grade for a couple of years in Pamlico County, then worked for a while with select students at West Craven High School and taught math remediation to 6th-8th graders at West Craven Middle School. I then took a few years off to be a stay-at-home mom when my husband Greg and I had our children, Hailey and Tanner.
When I decided to come back to teaching, I found my second family here at Trent Park. Since joining the staff on October 1, 2001, I have been blessed with many opportunities to work in a variety of positions. I spent several years teaching 1st grade, then several years in 3rd grade, and a couple of years in 5th. I then left the classroom for seven years. During that time, I worked as a District Curriculum Coach at Trent Park and Bridgeton Elementary, a Title I Reading Interventionist, and most recently, I served 3rd, 4th, and 5th grade teachers and students as a Multi-Classroom Leader (MCL).
This will be my first year teaching 4th grade, and I am so excited to be back in the classroom and have my "own" kids again. We are going to have an amazing year as we learn and grow together!
