Mrs. Jenna Arnold

5th Grade Teacher

My name is Jenna Arnold. I started here in February of 2019 and this will be my second full year at Coats Elementary. This is my sixth year teaching. I previously taught 5th grade as well as 7th grade math and science in Wake County. I graduated from East Carolina University in the Spring of 2015 with a Bachelor's Degree in Elementary Education. I went to high school in Johnston County at the Johnston County Middle College High School as well as the North Carolina School of Science and Math Online. Although I had a love for math and science and thought about going into the medical field, growing up the daughter of two educators made me love the atmosphere a school provides.

I live in Linden with my husband Blake who works for the NC Forest Service. We were married this past July in the Botanical Gardens in Fayetteville. We have twin cats who are three years old, Hazel and Bluebelle. Outside of working with children, I enjoy spending time with my family and cats, going on walks, painting, napping, and watching TV.
