Hello and welcome to my class website! My name is Emily Jones, and I teach 8th grade Science and 8th grade Pre-AP/GT Science at Ronald Thornton Middle School in Missouri City, TX. I am originally from central Illinois, where I attended Eastern Illinois University and graduated with a BA in Education and minor in Biology. This is my 20th year of teaching middle school science, my 12th year teaching in Texas and my 8th full year for Fort Bend ISD. I spent the first 8 years at a junior high in northern Illinois, then made the move to Texas! I taught 8th grade science for Klein ISD for the next four years and I come to RTMS with experience teaching all science disciplines and all three grades in middle school. I am very excited to be a part of the RTMS family. It is my intention to prepare my students to be successful while fostering a love for learning in general and science in particular.
Outside of school, I am a busy mom of four children here in Sienna, ranging in age from 7 to 13!
