Mrs. Jennifer Hardin, Principal
I am honored to be your Principal at Wentworth Elementary. I look forward to continuing to support the strong tradition that you already have established for education and partnering with your community to provide the very best for each of our students. It is our goal to provide the best education possible for all of our students by providing resources, being supportive, collaborating with our stakeholders, and building on the excellence that our school has already established. Thank you for partnering with us on this mission.
After graduating from UNC Greensboro as a NC Teaching Fellow, I began my career in middle and elementary education as a teacher and administrator. In the last 10 years as an educator, I have also continued my own learning at High Point University and UNC Greensboro's graduate school programs. I recently completed my Educational Specialist degree in School Leadership and I am currently working on my doctorate in School Leadership. As a National Board Certified Teacher and a licensed administrator, it is my vision to instill in students, teachers, and families the same passion for lifelong learning.
I believe that all children can learn and all children learn in different ways. Literacy is the foundation of a child’s education and I want our students to develop a love for reading and a thirst for learning. Teachers, students, parents, and principals should have high expectations of themselves and others because high expectations will produce desired results. We must be a child centered community.
My husband Josh and I have a son named Ben and a daughter named Grace. We value family time and have a lot of fun watching Auburn football games, walking our two dogs, playing outside and visiting our family in Mississippi and Alabama. We love the time that we get to spend together.
As you know, we have outstanding teachers here at Wentworth Elementary. Please contact them first if you have any concerns or questions about the classroom. It is my mission to be accessible and visible to teachers, parents, and students. I think that effective communication is important. All phone calls and e-mails will be returned either on the same day or within 24 hours. Please e-mail or call me if you have any questions, concerns, or ideas. You can reach me at email@example.com or by phone at (336) 634-3250. Thank you for being an important part of our school community!
Jane Frazier, Assistant Principal
I am thrilled to be a part of the Wentworth family!
As a Rockingham County native, I look forward to continuing to serve the students, staff, and families in our community.
I received my Bachelor’s degree from UNC-Chapel Hill in Elementary Education where I was also an NC Teaching Fellow. After college, I was hired at Williamsburg Elementary where I taught Kindergarten for two years and 5th grade for six years. While teaching, I completed my Master's in Elementary Education through NC A&T and my Add on Licensure in School Administration through Appalachian State. I am going into my second year in administration and look forward to new opportunities at Wentworth.
My husband and I have one young daughter that keeps us busy. As a
family, we enjoy spending time together, playing outside, and visiting with extended family and friends.
Wentworth will be my home each week on Tuesday, Thursday and every other Friday. Please feel free to contact me anytime at firstname.lastname@example.org or
