Getting to Know Your Teacher

I have taught for 19 years at USD 379 as an Early Childhood Special Education teacher. I graduated from Emporia State University with my Bachelor's degree in Elementary Education and K-State with my Masters in ECSE.

I am married to Matt Jones and we have two daughters Madisyn who is in the 7th grade and Kelsey who graduated from Tabor College in May and will be attending Graduate school for Occupational Therapy. In my leisure time, I enjoy reading, walking and playing board games.
