All About Me!
My name is Janice Jones and I am very excited to be a part of the MAE program at Western. I am a 2007 graduate of WKU's Elementary Education program. After graduation, I accepted a position at Rock View Elementary in Kensington, Maryland. I taught 3rd grade for 5 years at Rock View and I will begin my 4th year in 1st grade on Monday, August 31st 2015.
At this point in my career I have not had any leadership or coaching experience in mathematics instruction. I have served as the first grade representative on the math committee and I shared curriculum based games/activities during our annual Math Night. I am excited about this school year because I am beginning this program and my school will start PLCs that are focused on peer coaching. I chose the group that will focus on small group math instruction.
My personal interests include cooking, running, and reading blogs about Korean Dramas.
I look forward to growing and learning with you all!
My mom is my best friend! Although we live 600 miles apart we talk at least 3 times each day!
I recently discovered how much I love flowers! I saw these incredible hydrangeas at a neighbor's house.
I live in a suburb of Washington DC and I love going to all the museums/festivals.
