Mrs. Sierra Jennings

My name is Sierra Jennings and I serve at Lead Teacher at Hawks Nest STEAM Academy. This is my eleventh year serving as an educator in North Carolina, as I have taught in both Charlotte Mecklenburg Schools and Gaston County Schools. I have experience as a classroom teacher and Title One tutor, as well as beginning teacher mentor and member of the GCS Teacher Leadership Team. 

I was born and raised here in Gastonia, N.C. and graduated from Ashbrook High School in 2005. I received my Bachelor's degree in Elementary Education from the University of North Carolina at Charlotte in December of 2009 and a Master's degree in Educational Leadership from Queens University of Charlotte in 2019. My husband and I have two sons, a daughter, and a dog named Daisy. In my spare time I love to spend time with my family.  Also, I love to scrapbook, read, catch up with friends, and travel with my family.
