Hello. My name is Ms. Jones. Welcome to all parents and students to the 2015-2016 school year. I will be your (your child's) 3rd grade teacher. I am looking forward to a great year of progressing, learning and growing!My Philosophy:I believe each student is a unique individual who needs a secure, caring and stimulating atmosphere in which to grow and mature academically, intellectually, emotionally, physically and socially. It is my desire as an educator to help students meet their fullest potential in these areas by providing an environment that is safe, supportive and invites a sharing of ideas.My Family & I:
I am a single mother of one wonderful child: Isaac, who is 17 years old. We are close; he is truly a great blessing in my life. We enjoy spending time together doing various outdoor activities, sightseeing, watching movies, reading and playing video games!My Perspective:I have the best career in the world because I truly enjoy working with and teaching children. I have cared for children since the age of 15, taught pre-school for over 20 years and am now teaching 3rd grade. My heart knew what it wanted to do for a living long before I even realized. There is nothing better than having a career doing what you love to do. I wake up every morning looking forward to connecting with and inspire the students of Emile Elementary. I am truly blessed!
