Mrs. Jersan Carter-Ward

Welcome Parents and Scholars!

My name is Jersan Carter Ward. I am currently an Exceptional Children's Teacher at Inborden Elementary S.T.E.A.M Academy, where I teach Kindergarten through 5th grade. I am from Tarboro, NC, but I have resided in Halifax County for the past 21 years. I have been working for Halifax County Schools for 20 years in different capacities. I received my A.A.S. degree in Early Childhood Education from Augusta Technical College and my B.S. in Business Administration from Wesleyan College.

As an educator, I believe that every child can learn, and every child is different. It is our duty to ensure that every child’s academic goals are met. If we work together, we can do the work. My Philosophy of Education; “You can do all things that you put your mind to." It is YOU who makes your reality real. No one can learn for you, it is up to you to…DO YOUR BEST!” Teamwork makes the dream work!

My classroom team includes Ms. Phyliss Whitaker and Mrs. Jennifer Gardner. They serve as my Instructional Assistants in the classroom. We work together to make sure all our students are reaching their academic goals. All assignments and announcements will be posted through Google Classroom.  This is a way parents can keep up with what's going on in the classroom at all times. 

if you have any questions or concerns, please feel free to email me at or contact me at 252-445-5455 Ext 1508.  Office hours are between 3:30 -4:00 pm. Let's work together and sail through the chartering waters to academic excellence!
