Our Classroom Mission
Please check back after the first week of school. Our class will work together to write the mission statement.
My name is Jewel Waller. I am a native of Davie County. I graduated from Davie High School and went on to attend Mitchell Community College. After receiving my Associate's Degree in Pre-Liberal Arts, I transfered to The University of North Carolina at Charlotte. I graduated with a degree in Elementary Education in May of 1996. Then I substituted in the Charlotte- Mecklenburg School system for about a year. I taught fourth grade for two years in Charlotte-Mecklenburg Schools. Next, I taught fourth grade in a charter school in Rowan County. After that, I started teaching in Iredell-Statesville Schools. This is my 15th year of teaching. I graduated December 2011 with my Master's in Elementary Education Degree at Gardner-Webb University.
I enjoy reading a good book, dancing, and relaxing with friends and family. A hobby of mine is collecting Garfield things. I have Garfield comic books, posters (some are in my classroom), stuffed animals, keychain,etc. Some of my classroom bulletin boards incorporate Garfield into the classroom learning.
I believe that every child can learn. Some children learn in different ways or take longer to learn a concept, but every child can learn. It takes a combination of effort from the student, the teacher, and the parents to help a child to be successful in their school career.
