Meet Ms Dennis

Hello Mallard Creek Elementary Families. My name is Ms. Jovetta Dennis and I am the new assistant principal at Mallard Creek Elementary School.  As you can see from this picture at a former school carnival, I LOVE to have fun at school ,as well as help students to learn. 
I have been an educator for 25 years and I cannot believe it! I started as a teacher in my hometown of Kingsport, Tn. When my late husband got a promotion, we moved to South Carolina where I taught 3rd, 4th, 5th, and was a Math Lab teacher for 1st-5th graders for two years. I moved to Charlotte in 1999, and have been an assistant principal since that time. I started  off at Highland Elementary/Renaissance where I was able to work with Mrs. Lowe for four years after her internship there.  I have also been at University Meadows Elementary, Highland Creek Elementary, and now I am with you at Mallard Creek Elementary.
I love to travel, but I am sort of a Cheek(My fourteen year old told me I am a Chick Geek) so for fun I love to get a good book and sit on a beach! I also have a dog named Penny and walking her is very fun.
I look forward to getting to know everyone here, helping children learn and have great academic growth, and have fun as I do so.  Hope to meet you all at our fall carnival in October.
