Mrs. Voliva


My name is Jennifer Voliva, and I am a graduate of West Craven High School and East Carolina University.  After completing my degree in Elementary Education, I taught 1st grade for a couple of years in Pamlico County, then worked for a while with select students at West Craven High School and taught math remediation to 6th-8th graders at West Craven Middle School.  I then took a few years off to be a stay-at-home mom when my husband Greg and I had our children, Hailey and Tanner.

When I decided to come back to teaching, I found my second family here at Trent Park.  Since joining the staff on October 1, 2001, I have been blessed with many opportunities to work in a variety of positions.  I spent several years teaching 1st grade, then several years in 3rd grade, and a couple of years in 5th.  I then left the classroom for seven years.  During that time, I worked as a District Curriculum Coach at Trent Park and Bridgeton Elementary, a Title I Reading Interventionist, and most recently, I served 3rd, 4th, and 5th grade teachers and students as a Multi-Classroom Leader (MCL).

This will be my first year teaching 4th grade, and I am so excited to be back in the classroom and have my "own" kids again.  We are going to have an amazing year as we learn and grow together!

These are some of my favorite things!
