Ms. Jennifer Arnold, Instructional Resource Teacher

My name is Jennifer Arnold and this is my fourth year at Stough Elementary and I have taught fourth grade for 10 years. I am originally from Maryville, Tennessee. I earned my bachelor’s degree from Middle Tennessee State University and my master’s degree from Lincoln Memorial University. I believe that one of my jobs as an educator is to help each child discover his or her individuality and work alongside with them to maximize it through hands-on experiences and learning creatively.

My goal is to support teachers in providing engaging instruction that is fostered through collaboration, critical thinking, creativity, and communication. This is accomplished by implementing Common Core Standards through challenging learning experiences that will encourage independent thinking, social responsibility,and self - worth.

Mrs. Jordan Bradley, Magnet Coordinator

My name is Jordan Bradley and this is my first year as Magnet Coordinator at Stough Elementary!  For the past seven years I have taught both first grade and kindergarten at a magnet school in Wake County.  I grew up in Fuquay-Varina with my parents, three sisters and many rescued furry friends.  Being so close to Raleigh I grew up as an NC State fan, which is where I got my degree in Elementary Education.  After graduating from NC State I began teaching right away.  In August of 2014 I got married and we bought our first house back in Fuquay. On March 17, 2017 I had my first son, Griffin (Griff), and I absolutely love being a mom! 

Although I am new to Stough Elementary, I am very excited about working with such an amazing staff and school.  My goal as Magnet Coordinator is to show others the impact learning a second language can have on a child and to promote and showcase the Chinese Language Immersion program we have at Stough!

Ms. Sarah Huskey, 2-3 Immersion English Teacher

Hello! My name is Sarah Huskey and I am excited to have joined the Stough Family back in January. I am a Raleigh native and grew up as a student in the Wake County Public School System and I have enjoyed giving back as a teacher. The Harnett County Public School System is where I first started my teaching career and gradually made it into Wake County as a 3rd grade reading teacher. I have spent time in both 2nd and 3rd grade as well as kindergarten reading/math intervention and back into a classroom as a second grade teacher for several years before coming to Stough. Here, I will be teaching English to the K-2 Mandarin Immersion classes and digging into reading which is my passion. My husband and I just welcomed our first child back in September and we are enjoying every minute of parenthood. Traveling, spending time at the beach with family and watching football are some of my joys in life.
