Mrs. Jennifer Lynn Manchester
Hi, my name is Jennifer Manchester and I am very excited to be your child's teacher this year! This will be my eighth year teaching first grade at Carolina Forest International Elementary School! I am very blessed to be able to work at such a great school! We are going to have a year full of lots of learning and fun!
I was born in Buffalo NY, and grew up in Akron, NY. I went to college at Joshua Tree, CA, Coastal Carolina Community College, and graduated with a bachelor's in Elementary Education from UNC-Wilmington!! Go Seahawks!! I have been married to my wonderful husband Tim for the last 33 years. He is a 30 year retired marine veteran who now takes great care of our household. We have done a role reversal and it's been great; he does the cooking and cleaning, and I get to teach everyday!!
We have a beautiful 21 year old daughter Brittany, who is currently a senior at UNC-Wilmington. She is pursuing a degree in Communication Studies!!
I can’t forget to mention Midas, our pet chihauha/dachshund!
I like to read, cook, bake, take long walks, SHOP, go to the movies, kayak and ride bike. On our spare weekends, we like to go camping in our fifth wheel camper. We love to explore North Carolina campgrounds, and have met so many people from all over!
I absolutely love being a teacher! It has always been my dream to teach children and be rewarded with their success of learning. Children are our future, and I want to guide them to be the best they can be everyday! I can't wait to begin this school year and I look forward to many adventures of fun and learning with your child!
