Mrs. Davis

My name is Jennifer Davis, and I was born and raised in New Bern, NC. My husband, Barrett, is a Marine Corps Gunnery Sergeant, and we have 3 daughters, Lilly (19), Elaina (11), and Laila (3). We recently welcomed a granddaughter, Kalani, who will turn 1 in October. We also have 2 Huskies and 2 cats. I graduated from ECU in 2009 with my Bachelor's in Elementary Education, with a minor in reading. My teaching license is K-6, with a reading add-on to teach reading in grades K-12. This is my 11th year teaching. I've taught in both Illinois and North Carolina in grades K, 2nd, and 4th. I was at Graham A. Barden prior to coming to Gurganus. I was GAB's teacher of the year for the 2018-2019 school year, and served as both kindergarten grade level chair, and K-2 representative for GAB's school improvement team. I am so excited to be closer to my home and at Gurganus teaching 2nd grade! My favorite things to do when I'm not at work is spend time with my family, listen to music, collect crystals, learn more about Astrology, and cook. If you ever need to contact me, you can email me at, contact me via our class' DoJo app, or call the school office to leave me a voicemail at 252-444-5150.
