Ms. Jones

Hi!  I am Ms. Tanisha Jones and I am so excited to be the lead Pre K and Kindergarten teacher at Austin Parkway Elementary! 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 am from 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 and became a certified Reading Specialist.  I am the mother of 22-year-old twins. My daughter, Dezarae, loves to dance and cheer and attends college in downtown Houston. My son, Dorrian loves to play basketball and is also studying to become a special education teacher. My youngest, Devin, is now 8 years old. He attends school here at A.P.E. He loves to draw pictures and read chapter books. In my spare time I like to create do-it-yourself projects.

 This year will be my 11th year at Austin Parkway, but I have been teaching for 15 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. We are going to have a great year together!
