Hi! I am Jonelle Stitt and I am excited to be working with you and your child this year.
I am originally from a small town outside of Albany, NY. I came to North Carolina many years ago to play soccer and get an education at High Point University. I majored in Physical Education and Health. I moved to Charlotte after college. I began working for Charlotte Mecklenburg Schools in 1997 as an After School Program Site Coordinator. I began several new programs for the district before becoming a Teacher Assistant. After many years of being a teacher assistant, I knew that teaching was really what I was meant to do so I attended Pfeiffer University and earned my Masters of Arts in Teaching. I came to McAlpine 7 years ago and have been teaching Kindergarten here ever since!
I have 2 sons that I am very proud of! Jaylin is my oldest (18) and he is all over the place literally. He moved to Kansas City to play soccer for the Sporting Kansas City Academy. In September of 2017, he signed a professional contract with Sporting Kansas City of the Major League Soccer. TJ (13 )is a former McAlpine Eagle. He is so excited about middle school this year. He plays soccer too locally. I love watching my boys play soccer! It is a little strange not to have any of my own children here at school with me. I'm really excited to get to know your children here at McAlpine!
