Getting to Know Your Teacher

I have taught for 17 years at USD 379 as an Early Childhood Special Education teacher. I graduated from Emporia State University with my Bachelor's and from K-State with my Masters.

I am married to Matt Jones and we have two daughters Madisyn who is in the 5th grade and Kelsey who is a Sophomore in college at Tabor University. We have lived in Clay Center for over 17 years. My family and I spend a good deal of time at softball games which we enjoy tremendously!! In my leisure time, I enjoy reading, walking and playing board games.
