    Bio
    Hello, my name is Mrs. Curtrina Jones. I taught third grade for 7 years and am now the ARI Coach. I have been married for 16 years and have three children, a set of twins who are nine (Kailah and Kaiden), and a teenage son (Kristian). This is currently my eighth year at Glen Iris. I love being an educator. I believe in the education of the whole child. I am continuing my education, currently pursuing my Doctorate of Philosophy (Ph D) in Early Childhood Literacy. I believe in hands on learning and teaching. Students should always be involved in inquiry based learning activities and be challenged to reach their full potential. As a Reading coach, I provide leadership for school-, district-, and state level reading programs. I design, monitor, and assess reading achievement progress, Also, I provide professional development and coaching for teachers and building personnel and am responsible for assisting with improving reading achievement of the students we service.
