Mrs. Jennifer Gold

Welcome to Kindergarten 2021-2022!  Mrs. Wade and I are very excited to spend this year helping students learn and prepare to continue on to greater things.  Parents and guardians, working together, we can create opportunities for every child to obtain knowledge and skills he or she will need and use for the rest of his or her life!  It begins right here in Kindergarten!

Allow me to tell you a little about me:  I am originally from Whitmire, South Carolina.  New Bern has been my home since 1986. My husband is Milton E. Gold.  My son, Nick Putnam, lives in Raleigh, NC.  I also have 2 step-children, Kelly Gold Nehring and Casey Gold, as well as, step-grandchildren.  We moved here to begin an Acrylic Yarn Company called Amital Spinning.  When my son went off to college, I went off to college.  I graduated from ECU in 2008 with a BS in Elementary Education.  I am certified to teach Reading in grades K-12. Additionally, I am ESL certified. This will be my 11th year at J.T. Barber.
