    I have been teaching in Forsyth county since 2013. I have taught 2nd and 4th grade as a homeroom teacher, gifted and most recently STEM specials. I have a Masters in Early Childhood Education from the University of Georgia, as well as my reading and gifted endorsements. I enjoy sharing my love of learning with students and engaging them in hands-on projects that allow them to explore their passions.

    I am very excited to be serving Poole’s Mill this year as the Pirate’s Path teacher. Pirate’s Path will be a combination of Leader in Me, fitness, teamwork, and cooperative learning to prepare our Pirates to be leaders for life's adventures. It is very important to me that each child feels loved, supported, and valued, and I am eager to watch our Pirates thrive.

    Ahoy! I began my teaching career in 2006, teaching middle school band in Orlando, FL. I have been a Poole's Mill Pirate since our school opened and love sharing my passion for music with all of our students. I received my Bachelor of Music Education degree from Florida State University, my Master’s degree from Stetson University, and my Educational Specialist degree from Augusta University. I live in Cumming with my husband, Shawn, our children, Maddie and Ethan, and our dog, Bella. When I am not at school, I enjoy spending time outdoors with my family. I am looking forward to another great year here on the Pirate ship!

    Welcome, Pirates!  I am Mrs. Jones, and I am thrilled to be the Media Specialist for Poole’s Mill Elementary! Before opening the Poole’s Mill Media Center, I was a 4th grade teacher at Matt Elementary School. I also have experience teaching 1st grade, 2nd grade, 3rd grade, and I was also a Literacy Coach. 

    I am happily married to my wonderful husband, Bryan, and together we have two children.  Peyton is a 5th grader at Poole's Mill, and Parker is in 7th grade at Liberty Middle School.

    I enjoy traveling, boating, skiing, and spending time with my family.  My favorite subjects in school are reading and writing, and I especially love children’s books.  I am thrilled to continue to share my love of literacy with others!
