My name is Syreeta McHenry Jones and I have been an educator for many years. I attended Texas Southern University where I majored in Interdisciplinary Studies with a minor in Early Reading. I earned my master’s degree from Kaplan University in Curriculum and Instruction. I am also English as a Second Language (ESL) certified and Gifted and Talented trained. In addition, I have taken part in various instructional sessions that help me to continue to understand how children learn, as wells as how to utilize innovative methods of delivering powerful lessons to my class.
Being an educator is a very important to me because it requires dedication and determination. Growing up in Houston, I received guidance and nurturing from various teachers, administrators, and support staff. Because of this, I feel that my job as an educator impacts my students and their community greatly!
