Mrs. Jenna MacAlpin

My name is Jenna MacAlpin, better known as Mrs. Mac! I have a Bachelor’s Degree in Early Childhood Education from the University of Mount Olive. I also have my license in the state of North Carolina to teach Birth through Kindergarten with a Kindergarten through 6th Grade add-on. My husband and I moved here from Long Island, New York, in 2012. Together, we have two children, one entering Second Grade and one entering Third Grade. I enjoy incorporating fun and laughter into our daily class routines and have a genuine love for caring for children and encouraging their milestones and growth. I understand that for most, kindergarten is the first experience your child will have in school and I will always be available to discuss the best practices for each child to feel comfortable during this transitional time.

  • For our kindergartners, it is important to begin their academic career by putting their best foot forward. I am trained in Conscious Discipline and encourage classroom safety and peer connection by applying what I've learned.  Our CKLA curriculum teaches reading at an age-appropriate level through research-based instruction. I work hard to include outside connection activities to help make the CKLA (reading and ELA) and Ready Classroom (math) lessons that are taught make sense.
