Mrs. Jones

Welcome to second grade at Dan Emmett!! This is my seventh year teaching second grade and thirty-second year of teaching. I have also taught kindergarten and third grade.  I truly enjoy teaching and watching children discover, learn, and succeed.  
I moved to Knox County in 1993 from the small town of Tiffin which is in northwest Ohio.  I have lived in Apple Valley, Mount Vernon, and currently reside in Fredericktown. I graduated from Kent State University and I received my Master's Degree from Walden University.  
I have taught in Mount Vernon since 1994 and am proud to have played a small part in many Mount Vernon students' lives through the years.  After a year of teaching at Pleasant Street and the former West schools, I began teaching at Dan Emmett. It is exciting each year when I discover I have students in my class whose parents or other relatives were former students in my class or attended Dan Emmett!  It is great being part of such a hard-working, dedicated staff since 1995.
My husband and I have two grown sons who are proud graduates of Dan Emmett Elementary and MVHS. Our older son lives in Dublin, and our younger son lives in Waterville which is near Toledo. We are so glad to have both of them still living in Ohio. 
In addition to teaching, I enjoy running, gardening, reading, and spending time with family. I am a Cleveland's sports team fanatic. I am also a fan of the Columbus Blue Jackets and Detroit Red Wings. My younger son and I are currently in the process of attending games in all of the Original 6 hockey arenas, and we are preparing for an International 5K that will take place in May, 2025.
Feel free to contact me through Class Dojo between the hours of 8:00 and 3:45 Monday through Friday. This is the quickest way to reach me.  I will get back to you as soon as I am able.  Together we will make this a great year for your child!
