My name is Natosha Jones and I’ve been an educator for 18 years with thirteen of those being within FBISD. I really enjoy growing leaders and helping kids through their individual learning paths so that they are able to find and then chart their own way. I believe in supporting the social emotional needs of all students and I recognize the importance of allowing our Palmer Bears to have ownership of their learning. These are things that I am very passionate about and I will do all that I can to ensure that my students are successful.
One of my most celebrated accomplishments is being able to serve students and educators abroad. I taught students and trained teachers on my campus in Abu Dhabi, United Arab Emirates for three years. It was a wonderful experience to be emerged into such a rich culture that was different than my own. My time abroad was filled with lots of hard work, training and adventure! I feel so honored to have met so many amazing educators from all over the world! I learned a lot new thigs and made many new friends during my time there. It was an experience of a lifetime!
I am an advocate for continued learning so I am always seeking opportunities to expand my knowledge and grow. I often learn new ways of doing things from my very talented students. I have served students and parents in various capacities while in education and growing children will always be my passion. I love teaching reading comprehension and small group collaboration occurs regularly in my classroom. I believe that our 5th grade family will learn and grow together and I am excited about starting this school year with your child.
