Degrees and Certifications:
Ms. Jennifer Weiss
I'm very excited to be working at Laurel Park again this year and with the amazing second grade team. I'm originally from a suburb outside Philadelphia. Although that’s where my roots are, and I will support the Eagles through thick and thin, I have lived in a number of states since graduating from high school. I’m happy to have roots in North Carolina and amazing friends that are “my family” away from family.
I received my bachelor's degree from West Virginia University (Let's go Mountaineers!!!). I went on to complete my master's degree in Elementary Education at Towson University in Maryland. After completing my master’s degree I moved to Coeur d’Alene, Idaho where I taught a third/fourth combo class for three years. This was an amazing experience living in the Pacific Northwest. There were no potatoes where I lived, all mountains and lakes…a beautiful part of the country!
I started working in Wake County in 2007. Prior to coming to Laurel Park, I taught at Reedy Creek Elementary (in Cary) for seven years. My first year there I taught third grade and have been teaching second grade ever since. I have developed a true love for this age group.
I live in Holly Springs with my son Jack, who also attends Laurel Park.
