Greetings Bears, I am Kimberly Jones. I would like to welcome you to what is going to be an AWESOME year! I currently hold a Masters of the Art of Teaching, Bachelor of Business Administration as well as, a Specialist candidate in Education Administration from Jackson State University. I am entering my 17th year of teaching and eagerly await the years to come. Teaching is a way for me to shape and build your child’s future. Believing in my students’ capabilities, self-worth, and their character has proven to build strong bonds. Every day, I set high expectations because I believe they can do it. Strongly encouraging students daily recognizes their abilities. I find it very rewarding to see learning manifest itself. I believe that I am teaching future lawyers, doctors, cutting-edge researchers, and, yes, educators. I continously, positively empower students by expressing to them that I believe in them. I instill in them that they are destined for greatness!
