Welcome to Ms. Jones 7th/8th Special Education ELAR
Degrees and Certifications:
Hello! I am excited to be at the Gainesville Junior High and to be a Gainesville Leopard! I may be new to the district, but I am not new to education. I have 13 years of teaching experience. I have taught in a self-contained classroom for kinder and 1st grades, all subjects for 4th grade, junior high grammar and literature, 8th grade art, and special education resources classes for kinder to 8th grades in the course of those 13 years. I am certified to teach all subjects for Pre-K through 8th grade, ESL, and all level Special Education.
Like most kids, I have a difficult time sitting still and staying in doors all day long. I thoroughly enjoy being outside gardening, fishing, running, working out, or spending time with my chocolate laborador retriever. When I make time to rest or sit still, you will more than likely find me with a good book in my hands.
More than anything else, I love spending time with my family. I have a son that is a Texas A&M graduate, and currently a soldier serving in the United States Army. He is my hero, and my reason for approaching each day with a positive attitude. My amazing sister and loving parents live close, so I spend most of my time with them. I am truly blessed with family support in all I do.
I am excited about making GISD my new home and becoming an acitive participant in the community.
