Ms. Jones

Hi!  I am Ms. Tanisha Jones and I am so excited to be part of the Austin Parkway Elementary Kindergarten team! I am THRILLED to be your child’s teacher. It’s going to be a fun year full of learning and new adventures. I can’t wait to see what this year has in store for us. I want to know ALL about you, but first I am going to tell you a few things about myself. 

I was born in Galveston, Texas. So I love relaxing at the beach!!  My children and I try to travel the world as much as we can. 

I attended The University of Houston-Clear Lake, where I completed a Masters in Reading.  I am the mother of 21-year-old twins. My daughter, Dezarae, loves to dance and cheer and attends college in Denton. My son, Dorrian loves to play basketball and attends college in Prairie View. My youngest, Devin is now 6 years old. He attends school here at A.P.E. He loves to draw pictures and read bedtime stories.  And in my spare time I like to create do-it-yourself projects.

 This year will be my ninth year at Austin Parkway, but I have been teaching for 12 years now.  I love teaching Kindergarten because it is an amazing year of growth and development. The students are so excited and so eager to learn and try new things. I love watching them grow and explore .... We love to celebrate the “light-bulb moments”. 

Please do not hesitate to e-mail me if you have any questions or concerns.  My e-mail address is Tanisha.Jones@fortbendisd.com.  I am so excited about being your teacher this year and for you to be a part of our class. We are going to have a great year together!
