Ms. Susan Serenari
This is my 1st year at J.Y.Joyner Elementary and I am excited to be a part of this hard-working and joyful community! I will be the Instructional Resource Teacher (IRT) and Testing Coordinator. As the IRT, I have the pleasure of working with both students and teachers as we prepare our youngest learners to become productive citizens! Prior to joining the JYJ team, I worked at Aversboro Elementary in Garner for 9 year where I served as a Reading Intervention Teacher, 3-5 Literacy Coach and an IRT. I taught kindergarten and second grade for the first six years of my teaching career in various states. I am originally from Ohio and received my Undergraduate Degree in Early Childhood Education at Bowling Green State University in Bowling Green, Ohio. I earned my Masters Degree in Reading at Virginia Tech. When I am not working, I enjoy spending time with my family and friends, being outdoors and traveling.
