Corinne Owens - Title I Reading Teacher
My name is Corinne Owens and I'm a Title I reading teacher at JCE. This is my 29th year as an elementary education teacher. I began my career as a 4th grade teacher in Birmingham, Alabama where I taught for 3 years. I then moved back to Jacksonville, NC where I began teaching at JCE in 2nd grade for 8 years. I decided to become a Title I reading teacher and have been involved in the program for the past 18 years. I have experience working with all grade levels reinforcing ELA skills and guided reading strategies in a small group setting. My goal is to provide my students with additional support as they grow into readers and develop the LOVE for reading.

When I am not teaching I enjoy spending time with my family and friends, going to the beach, shopping, exercising, going to the movies, traveling, and of course READING!
