Mrs. Jana Gissy

I have been employed by Catawba County Schools since September 1999.  I was a teacher assistant/bus driver at Clyde Campbell Elementary for 13 years. As a teacher assistant I worked with kindergarten and first grade.  In January 2008, I went back to school in the evenings to obtain my teaching certificate.  I graduated with a BS in Elementary Education in December, 2013. I was hired at St. Stephens Elementary in January 2014 and taught 5th grade ELA and Social Studies.  In the fall of 2015, I had the opportunity to return to Kindergarten.  I am excited to be part of the Kindergarten team here at St. Stephens.  I have recently become a part of the dual immersion team for kindergarten. I teach the English portion of the program and Ms. Holguin teaches the Spanish portion. This has been a great opportunity and I am very excited to help launch this program at St. Stephens Elementary.
