Our 4th and 5th Grade Assistant – Mrs. Jodi Davis
Mrs. Davis was born in Kalamazoo, Michigan and grew up near Frederick, MD. She chose to attend college at West Virginia University to play flute and piccolo in their award-winning marching band. Mrs. Davis met her husband, Bill, at WVU when they were both members of Alpha Phi Omega National Service Fraternity. After getting married, they moved to Wilmington so Bill could pursue a career in production design and art direction for film and television. He was nominated for an Emmy award for his work on season 1 of Stranger Things! They have two beautiful, talented daughters- Kaitlin and Sarah- who both graduated from East Carolina University with degrees in Dance Performance. Kaitlin and Sarah own a dance studio in Durham called Davis Dance Company.
During her teaching career, Mrs. Davis has taught middle school and high school Math, middle school Science & Social Studies, and 3rd grade Math, Science, and Social Studies. She joined the WAAS staff in 2018 and is very excited to work with WAAS’ 4th & 5th grade class. Mrs. Davis is also looking forward to the opportunity to work with Elementary and Middle School Science Olympiad again this school year. Go Owls!
In her free time, Mrs. Davis enjoys reading (especially on the beach), taking cruises, watching the Little League World Series, cooking, and volunteering with Nourish NC.
