Mrs. Melissa C. Jones

Hello, I am Mrs. Melissa C. Jones an East Texas native who currently serves as the Head Director of the Willowridge High School Dance Program, including the award-winning Enchanting Wings Dance Team and Wings JV Dance Team.  Since 2006, I have been a part of the Eagle family at Willowridge High School serving as the Head Dance Teacher for grades 9-12/Dance I-IV.  I am truly honored and proud to serve as director of such an illustrious, well-respected program. In addition to serving as the Dance Program Director, I currently serve as Senior Sponsor for Class of 2021, Professional Learning Lead, and WHS Fine Arts Department Head.

 

Prior to teaching dance at Willowridge High School, I was a dance educator who taught Hip Hop and Modern Dance Classes levels I-IV at Lamar High School in Houston ISD and was Head Director of the acclaimed Rangerettes Dance Team. In 2002, I graduated from Sam Houston State University with a Bachelor of Fine Arts Degree in Dance.  While attending Sam Houston State University,  I was a member of the Spectrum Dance Company, and Delta Sigma Theta Sorority, Inc.  In 2015, I received my Master's Degree in Educational Administration from Concordia University in  Austin, TX, and was selected as the 2015-2016 Teacher of the Year for Willowridge High School. 

 

My mission is to share my love for dance with my students and to inspire and impact their lives in a positive way with my passion for dance, service, and excellence.
