Ms. Jenkins

This is my first year teaching in Wake County Public schools. I moved to Cary from Winston-Salem about a year ago and have served students in Kindergarten through fifth grade in many capacities. My favorite part of teaching is when a student finally comes to understand the content. In my spare time I love to go to Target and window shop, eat pastries, and relax. I am looking forward to a great year!!
