Bachelor of Science - Elementary Education
My name is Jennifer Voliva. I have always lived in Craven County, and I graduated from West Craven High School many years ago -- go Eagles! After earning my degree at East Carolina University, I began teaching first grade in Pamlico County. After a couple of years there, I worked with a select group of juniors and seniors at West Craven High School before moving to West Craven Middle School and teaching 6th-8th grade remedial math. Once my husband, Greg, and I started our family, I took a few years off to be a stay-at-home mom to our children, Hailey and Tanner.
Then, one day, I ran into my former assistant principal from WCMS, who was at that time the principal at Trent Park. She convinced me to come for a visit at TPE, and the rest is history. I joined the Trent Park family on October 1, 2001, and I have been here ever since. I spent several years teaching first grade, then several years in third, and then a couple more in fifth, before becoming a district curriculum coach and working at both Trent Park and Bridgeton Elementary. A couple of years ago, I became a Title I teacher at Trent Park, and I LOVE it! Whether I'm working with students on math or reading, I love getting to work with all grades from kindergarten to fifth, and being able to focus on a small group of students at a time.
Outside of school, I enjoy spending time with my family, reading, and being involved in my church. Since Hailey and Tanner are both in college, and my husband owns his own guide business, it's difficult to find time to be together, but when we do, you can often find us out on the boat, either fishing or just enjoying God's creation.
