Mrs. Jill Staton
Hello everyone! My name is Jill Staton. I am the STEM specials teacher at Patriots STEM Elementary. I am originally from Saugerties, NY, but I have lived most of my life in Kannapolis, NC. I graduated from UNC Charlotte with a BA in English and a MEd in Elementary Education. I am also a National Board Certified teacher. I have worked for Cabarrus County Schools for 18 years. I began teaching at Coltrane-Webb STEM Elementary and then moved to Patriots 7 years ago. I have taught K, 2nd, and 5th grade with most of my time in Kindergarten. I'm very excited to continue my journey by teaching STEM to the entire school!
When I am not at school, I enjoy being with my family...we always have adventures! I have twins (boy & girl) that are 26, a daughter that is 20, and another daughter that is 13. We also have 4 chickens (all girls), 4 ducks (all boys), 2 dogs, a guinea pig, and a bucket of worms. Life is never dull!
I am looking forward to a great school year!
