Welcome to Fifth Grade! My name is Ms. T. Jones. I am so looking to being your teacher this year! This will be my sixth year teaching at Charles A. Brown International Baccalaureate! I have been teaching for a total of 17 years in the Birmingham School System. I obtained my Bachelor's Degree in Elementary Education from Miles College. After that, I continued to grow as an educator and received a Master's in Education from Alabama State University and an Eds. In Teacher Leadership from the University of Montevallo. Attending those universities has equipped me with the necessary tools to shape and grow the minds of all children. My first year of teaching started at Epic Elementary where I taught fourth grade. Upon the beginning of the newschool year, I was reassigned to Barrett Elementary. There I taught fourth grade for ten years. As you can see, I truly enjoyed teaching fourth grade at Barrett Elementary, but God felt it was time for me to move on to a new school which is where I am today!
I have three children, Kalik, Henry, and Treasure. My oldest son is Kalik who attends Miles College, and my two youngest children attend Fairfield High School. The children and I enjoy taking trips, walks in the park or mall, bowling, and watching college football. During championship time, my house is very divided because all three children are Alabama fans and mommy is an AUBURN fan. War Eagle!!!
My favorite thing about children and people in general: Everyone has hope! All you have to do is take the time to listen to their story. I know that with a positive attitude and hard work we will have a great year of learning together.
