My name is Jaalil Hart, and I am thrilled to be joining the staff at Niner University Elementary at Amay James as a kindergarten teacher! This is my 7th year teaching, and I’m excited to get to know the students and families at NUE this year.
Throughout my time as an educator, I have had many amazing opportunities to see many different aspects of education. From serving as an undergraduate intern for the State Superintendent of Public Instruction, to my daily work as a classroom teacher, these experiences have and continue to truly shape who I am as a professional. As a kindergarten and 2nd grade teacher in the Wake County Public School System, I have had the opportunity to work with many students and families, and have enjoyed every moment of working to meet the needs of students. As a teacher, I have developed a passion for working with diverse populations of students. It has been my duty to ensure that all students have access to and receive the education they are entitled to. Likewise, I have dedicated myself to building powerful partnerships with parents and families. Relationships through which stakeholders not only feel welcome to come and volunteer in classrooms, but also realize that they are partners in their child’s education.
As a life-long learner, I pride myself on finding new opportunities to grow both personally and professionally. I earned my B.S. degree in Elementary Education from North Carolina A&T State University, a M.Ed. in Education Policy from the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign, and a graduate certificate in School Administration from Appalachian State University. Currently, I am a doctoral student at UNC Charlotte.

I come from a long line of educators! My mom was my 2nd grade teacher!
