Ms. Jones is originally from Brooklyn, New York, but she has been in Houston, Texas since 1991. She earned her degree from Cornell University in Ithaca, New York. She holds a teaching certificate for all subjects PK-6 as well as in ESL. She spent the first thirteen years of her career as an elementary school teacher, where she especially enjoyed teaching writing. On one occasion, she was happy to see her students' writings exhibited in a Houston museum!
Ms. Jones is a fan of Dr. Who, Marvel Comics, and anything that has to do with Star Wars! She has a collection of Cinderella stories from around the world. Jacob Lawrence is her favorite artist. And she Loves New York!
Ms. Jones would like her students to consider that the word "NO" is powerful. She wants them to let that word be their motivation for what they can achieve in the future. She would like for her students to find a way to turn their passion into their lives' work.
We welcome Ms. Jones to our Burbank Eagle family and hope that this year will be great for her and her students!
