• Hello! My name is Jessica Haynes. This is my first year teaching at Oakridge Elementary School. I am so excited to join the second grade team. I grew up between Charlotte and Gastonia, NC. I received my Bachelor's Degree in Elementary Education from Belmont Abbey College in Belmont, NC. My experience ranges from early childhood education to first grade. I have worked in education for almost ten years! I believe in creating a community of learners who can respect and encourage one another while they work to reach their goals.

    When I am not at school, I love to spend time with my friends and family. I love Carolina Panthers football in the fall and a day at the beach in the summer! We are going to have a fantastic year!
