This week’s Welcome To Sanford Teacher of the Week column features J. Glenn Edwards Elementary School’s Jennifer Doss. Ms. Doss is in tenth year as a kindergarten teacher at Edwards and has called the school home for the entirety of her teaching career. She holds a BA in Elementary Education from St. Andrews Presbyterian University and an Associate of Arts degree from Central Carolina Community College.
Ms. Doss gains satisfaction in watching her students learn and grow as the school year progresses, commenting “I enjoy teaching children to read and learn everyday.” She adds, “it is truly amazing how much knowledge kindergarteners acquire throughout the year.”
In collaboration with her assistant Ms. Lindsey, Ms. Doss believes in making the school day fun and exciting so that her students are eager to come back the next day. Asked to share her teaching philosophy, Ms. Doss notes, “I believe students are individuals and can all learn. Maybe not in the same way or on the same day, but with the right method and strategy they can all be successful.”
In her free time, Ms. Doss likes to read and spend time with her family. She also enjoys shopping and finding great bargains.
