Mrs. Barbara Riordan
I have been teaching for 28 years and enjoy teaching children to love school! I grew up in Pennsylvania where I went to Juniata College and graduated with a dual degree in Early Childhood and Elementary Education. I received my graduate degree in Curriculum and Instruction from McDaniel College in Western Maryland. I taught in Maryland for 16 years before relocating to North Carolina. Most of my career has been spent teaching kindergarten, my favorite grade! I live in the area with my husband and have a high school daughter as well as a daughter here at Jones Dairy Elementary. Our family also has a golden retriever named Newt.
Mrs. Rose Brown
Mrs. Brown joined our classroom in January 2016. We are glad to welcome her back to kindergarten! She has previously worked as a teacher assistant in both kindergarten and first grade. Mrs. Brown enjoys gardening in her free time. She and her husband live in Wake Forest and have one daughter and two dogs.
