Welcome to 1st Grade

Miss Caroline Bamford

Miss Caroline BamfordHello there!

I am Miss Bamford, a first-grade teacher at Jenkins Elementary.  This will be my third year teaching 1st grade at Jenkins.  I am so excited to get to meet and grow with your student this year. We have so many exciting and wonderful things to learn. 

I graduated from Radford University and grew up right down the road in Manassas, VA. When I’m not in the classroom, you can find me spending time with my Black Lab, Mason, cheering on DC sports teams, or enjoying time outside with my friends and family.  I enjoy traveling and exploring new adventures.

I am looking forwards to a bright and successful school year. Together, we can achieve anything! Please do not hesitate to contact me with any questions or concerns regarding your student. Let’s make this year the best one yet.

Welcome to First Grade!

My name is Mrs. Braxton-Frazier, and I will be your child’s first-grade teacher for the 2021-2022 school year. I am excited to continue this journey with a strong community at John D. Jenkins Elementary, filled with an awesome staff and wonderful families. Together, we will make this an incredible school year!

I look forward to getting to know each student and family in my class, so I’ll start things off by sharing a little about myself. I was raised in Prince William County and have loved being able to start my teaching career in the county I grew up in. This will be my third year teaching First Grade at John D. Jenkins Elementary. I have a Master’s in Curriculum and Instruction from George Mason University. When I am not teaching I love spending time outdoors, going on adventures with my family, and spending time with my nephew!

In our classroom, we will work together to build strong relationships and establish a strong classroom foundation. We will continue to grow as active learners and great leaders. If you have any questions, comments or concerns, please do not hesitate to contact me at braxtoSR@pwcs.edu.

I look forward to meeting you,

Mrs. Braxton-Frazier

Hello Jenkins Families!

My name is Ms. Steven and I am so excited to start this new school year as your child’s first grade teacher! Jenkins is all about building community in each other and that is exactly what I strive to do in the classroom. We are going to have a year full of fun, learning, new friendships, and new experiences.

To tell you a little about myself, I grew up in PWCS, going to school very nearby at Old Bridge ES, Westridge ES, Woodbridge Middle and High School. It felt so amazing to come back to my roots! I also coach Color Guard in Fairfax at Robinson Secondary and have enjoyed doing this beautiful sport for over 10 years! I love to read, craft, sing, and I have a very big spot in my heart for Harry Potter.

I am really looking forward to starting this new school year and am ready to have your students join me in the journey! If you have any questions, comments or concerns, please do not hesitate to contact me at stevensh1@pwcs.edu.

I look forward to meeting you,

Ms. Steven
