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. My husband and I moved here from Long Island, New York, in 2012. Together, we have two children, one entering First Grade and one entering Second 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, Pre-K 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 preschoolers, it is imperative that they begin to learn the process and routines that come with beginning their academic career while maintaining age-appropriate expectations.  Through our Pre-K program, we work on various studies using Creative Curriculum and follow a social and emotional program called Second Step.  These help promote taking healthy steps towards understanding how school operates.
