My name is Mrs. Jones and I am a teacher of fabulous fifth graders here at Neil Armstrong Elementary. I have been teaching at NAE for 4 years. Before I came to NAE, I was a preschool teacher at Joyful Noise Learning Center here in our local community. My love for teaching began at a very young age. I remember playing school at 5 years old with my cousins and brothers, and I was always the teacher! I always have had a need to teach, a need to share, and a need to help kids.
I enjoy watching kids begin believe in themselves and blossom into leaders of their education. Reading is one of the best gifts you can give a child. Reading can take them anywhere, from extraordinary stories, to careers, to higher education; reading is exceptionally important. "Reading is dreaming with open eyes."
My husband and I have been married for almost 15 years and we have two children, Camden and Maddox. In addition to our boys, we have our fur babies as well. Eleanor, Ellie for short, is an 8 year old dog. We are not sure of her breed. Remington, Remmy, is a 2 year old tuxedo cat who loves to run around and play. Finally, we have Winston, Winnie, who is a 7 year old cat that is a very large and lazy cat who loves to cuddle. Each of our animals were rescued from an animal shelter as a puppy or kitten, except for Winnie. We adopted Winnie as an adult cat at the age of 7. As you can tell we love animals and we love kids!
