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.

Dr. Cecconi-Roberts, AIG Teacher

I joined the staff as the AIG teacher in 2016 and am 50% at Stough and 50% at Reedy Creek Elementary.  Before coming to Stough, I taught AIG for four years, also in Wake County.  Prior to coming to North Carolina, I lived in southern California, Missouri and Michigan, where I taught elementary music and middle school band.  I have degrees education and music performance from Wake Forest University, The University of Michigan and the University of Missouri, and have additional AIG and Middle School Math certifications from UNC-Charlotte. When I’m not at school, you can find me performing clarinet, flute, sax and bassoon with local musical groups, watching my daughter play volleyball (DIII indoor and beach at Penn State) or with my husband working on WWII airplanes.  I thoroughly enjoy teaching elementary children and challenging them to work to their fullest potential with dynamic learning experiences, project based learning lessons and technology, so they can grow to become life-long learners.
