Mrs. Jennifer J. Betts

I am a 6th grade ELA teacher at Harnett Central Middle School. I have lived in Harnett County my entire life.

I have taught 2nd, 3rd, 4th, 5th, and 6th grades in Harnett County.  I have had the privilege of teaching at Shawtown Elementary, LaFayette Elementary, and I am currently teaching at Harnett Central Middle School. I have taught in Harnett County for 25+ years. I graduated from Western Carolina University. I am married to Ronnie Betts and we have 2 boys that attend NC State.

I love to go to the Snead's Ferry and spend time on the Creek. I love to fish, I am more of a "catcher" than a "fisher." I love to make wreaths, bows, and refinish furniture. I like to spend time outside. I am a jokester and prankster, I can give it but I can't take it OR I rather dish it out than take it!!! I believe that laughter is the best medicine. One of my favorite sayins is, "A day without laughter, is a day wasted!"

I am a die hard UNC fan! Go Heels!!!
