Ms. Jones

Welcome to 5th Grade Reading!

This school year will mark my 13th year of teaching, and my 7th year teaching at East Elementary. Being a teacher is the most rewarding job in the world, and I can not wait to begin our year together! 

I have two children, Addison and Cole. We enjoy Alabama football and basketball games, Atlanta Braves baseball, attending concerts, going to the lake, beach, or pool, and playing with our dog, Roxy. 

My hope is that you will love reading as much as I do. Reading helps expand our knowledge and enhance our vocabulary. It makes us more empathetic and stimulates our imagination. Reading has been proven to reduce stress, anxiety, and build confidence. Whether you read a newspaper, comic, blog, magazine, novel, picture book, fiction, non-fiction, self-help....reading is reading!
