Subjects Taught
Second Grade


In 2009, I graduated from Carson-Newman College with a Bachelor's Degree in Liberal Arts.  I am certified to teach K-6 grade.

In 2012, I received my Masters Degree in Curriculum and Instruction from Tusculum College.


 I am teaching ELA, Math, Social Studies, and Science this year.  In the past, I have also taught 1st grade.

I taught Second Grade in the 2009-2010 school year, and for the past 4 years. I have been an Alpha Bulldog

for 9 years!

Student Teaching:  Alpha Primary - Kindergarten 

Lincoln Heights Elementary - Fourth Grade


     I am from Morristown.  As a child, I attended West Elementary, Lincoln Heights Middle School, and West High School.  For my first two years of college, I attended Walters State Community College.  Then I went on to further my education at Carson-Newman.  I also have a Master's Degree in Curriculum and Instruction from Tusculum College.

     This is my ninth year of teaching, but my fifth year teaching 2nd grade. 

     I have been married for 4 years to my husband, Tyson Jones.  He teaches 8th Grade Math at Lincoln Heights Middle School.

     We have a daughter, Tymber Kate, who will be two years old soon!

     I absolutely love teaching at Alpha Primary, and I love teaching 2nd grade! It is my mission to instill a love for learning in my students. I attempt to teach with a passion for my subject so my students develop a desire to become life-long learners. Please let me know if you have any questions or concerns. It is so important to keep communication open between us, and I would love to talk to you whenever you feel the need. I look forward to a great year with you and your child!
