Hi! I am Kelly DiGiovanni.  I was born in Elizabeth City, NC and attended East Carolina University - Go Pirates! This is my seventeenth year teaching at Rolesville Elementary.  I have taught third and fifth grades, and my son is also a Rolesville Ram!  

Rolesville Elementary is a great place to learn because our staff is committed to our students and the community.  We all work to ensure students are learning and that they know they are cared about.

I chose to work at Rolesville Elementary because even though Wake County is huge, we still have a small town feel.  I love knowing so many of the families that are a part of our school, teaching my former students' siblings, and seeing my former students in the community.

Hi! I am Joe Pallozzi.  This is my 23rd year teaching elementary school students. I have taught in both 5th and 6th grades. I taught for 18 years in Pennsylvania and this is my fifth year here at Rolesville Elementary. I have a master's degree in Elementary Education and have taken leadership classes also. 

The things I enjoy most about teaching are building positive relationships with my students and pushing them to strive to be their best. I want all of my students to understand that productive struggle is essential for learning and growth. As a male in elementary school, I am able to be a role model for students and have a positive influence on their lives. In a word...that's AWESOME!

My hobbies include boating, golf, ATV riding, reading and playing with my kids at the beach. I have a wonderful wife Wendi and am blessed with three incredible children Nathan, Olivia and Joshua. Life is good!

I think what makes Rolesville Elementary a great place to learn is the students! I see the students' smiles, hugs, and high-fives every day, in all grade levels. Teachers are important, no doubt. But the students' impact on the learning environment is immeasurable.

I chose to work at Rolesville Elementary for a couple of reasons. I wanted to work at a school that is part of the community. Rolesville Elementary is a staple in the town and gives off the small community feel. Also, I wanted to teach in an area that embraces diversity and growth. I believe Rolesville Elementary does both and is a great place to work!

My name is Jessica Jarvis. I was born in Tacoma Washington. I lived there for 38 years. This is my second year living and teaching in North Carolina. I have been married to my husband David for 22 years. I have two teenage boys.

I believe that developing positive open communication in the classroom leads to students feeling safe to voice their successes and struggles. I work hard to develop positive relationships with my students and their families. It is important that children feel like they have a safe place to learn and grow.

Upon moving to North Carolina, I had the opportunity to get to know the area schools through substituting. Rolesville quickly became a school that I wanted to work for. Rolesville Elementary has a caring staff that cares about the students, families, staff and any visitor that comes through their doors. I enjoy working with the staff, students and families. It truly is a great place to work.
