Dr. Roneca H. Wallace

My name is Dr. Roneca Wallace. I was born and raised in New Bern, NC. I am also a proud product of the Craven County School System. My educational career began 23 years ago. I have taught in Pitt and Craven Counties. I've had the pleasure of teaching Kindergarten, First, Second, Third, and Fourth grades. Upon leaving the classroom, I served in the capacity of a District Learning Systems Coach, elementary school assistant principal, high school assistant principal, and elementary principal for 4 1/2 years in Craven County Schools. During the 2011-2012 school year, I had the pleasure of being named Teacher of the Year for Craven County Schools.

My scholastic background includes a Bachelor’s in Social Work, a Master of Arts in Teaching, a Masters in School Administration, an Education Specialist Degree, and a Doctorate of Education in Curriculum and Instruction. I renewed my National Board Certification in 2018, demonstrating my continued commitment to teaching and the important work that happens with children in the classroom.

My husband is Tabari Wallace, 2018 North Carolina Principal of the Year and Special Advisor to the State Superintendent for Principal Engagement. We have one beautiful daughter, who recently became engaged, and our fur baby, Gucci.

This is my 1st year at JTB.  My goal is to ensure your child has a rigorous, yet engaging learning environment. I believe if we work together as a partnership, we can help our students grow and excel in every aspect of their lives. I am excited about returning to my home community to serve our families.
