Mrs. Jones was born in Ukiah, California and has lived all over the United States. When Mrs. Jones is not working, she enjoys spending time with her friends and family. She love the military. She is also the spouse of a man who just recently retired after 22 years in the Air Force. The benefits of being in the military can’t be measured. The sacrifices she makes as a spouses are minimal to what those in the uniform do for us every day.
Mrs. Jones has worked as a National Board Certified Hearing Instrument Specialist. This allowed her to administer hearing tests and educate patients and their families in techniques to improve hearing and communication related to hearing loss. She enjoyed this job, but had to leave this profession to fulfill her heart’s desire to teach.
Mrs. Jones graduated from the College of Southern Idaho with a Technical Certificate in Science, the University of Utah with a Bachelors’ degree in Speech Communications/Disorders, and more recently she graduated Magna Cum Laude from Weber State University with a Bachelors’ degree in Elementary Education/Special Education. She has obtained an English as a Second Language Endorsement, Educational Technology Endorsement, Level 2 Licensure and a STEM Elementary Endorsement. She has always believed that teaching and learning go hand in hand, and in order to become a teacher, it is important to exceed her own limits by gaining knowledge and that she should never stop learning.
She believes that to be most effective as an educator, She needs to create a safe environment that is interactive, collaborative, promotes problem-solving and critical thinking skills. This welcoming environment accommodates a variety of learning styles and encourages students to present their opinions while respecting the opinions of others. She is a teacher who strives to affect the youth and empower them to achieve and become all that is within their ability. She will teach with all of her ability and instill each student the self-confidence to always strive for future success. Teaching is a gift of a lifetime, which She thinks no other career can provide.
