Degrees and Certifications:
Hi, my name is Tonya Jones, welcome to 3rd grade at Wilson’s Mills Elementary School. I am so excited to have the opportunity to teach your child and I am looking forward to working with your family. I have an exciting year full of hands on learning and technology planned for my students.
Here is a little information about me. I graduated Summa Cum Laude from East Carolina University with a major in Bachelor of Science in Elementary Education and a minor in reading. I am currently a member of three academic honor societies, Phi Theta Kappa Honor Society, Kappa Delta Pi Honor Society for Educators, and Phi Kappa Phi Honor Society. I have committed myself to implementing the absolute best and current teaching strategies that have been proven to be successful.
I have an incredible family that I love to spend time with. My husband Derek and I enjoy spending time at home with our children Gabriel and Eva. When I am not working hard on school related activities, I am having fun with them. We love to travel and spend time outdoors. I personally love to read, learn about new cultures, and relax.
My Teaching Philosophy is that all students can learn when they are accepted for who and where they are in their educational journey. I believe learning best takes place in a positive safe environment that is full of laughter. Effective learning requires a collaboration between teacher, students, and parents grounded in mutual respect and trust.
Teaching is my passion. I couldn’t imagine myself doing anything else. I consider myself very lucky because I am blessed to have a job that doesn’t feel like a “job.” I love coming to school every day. I am extremely grateful to have the opportunity to teach your child. We are going to have a wonderful year!
If you have any questions about your child’s education or simply want to talk with me, I can be reached by either telephone 919-934-2978 or email firstname.lastname@example.org. Please do not hesitate to contact me. I look forward to teaching your children this year and helping them to reach their fullest potential.

Every JCPS parent must fill out the Second Semester Choice form to choose either the Virtual Program OR face-to-face instruction for each of their students. The Second Semester Choice form is to be filled out for ALL students in grades PreK-12. If a child is going to participate in face-to-face instruction for the second semester, the parent will be asked to fill out transportation information for the student in the form. A form for each student should be completed by Nov. 30.
Information on social distancing in school settings has been recently updated by the NC Department of Health and Human Services (NCDHHS). Upon receiving information from the NCDHHS, we consulted with the Johnston County Public Health Department on the impact these updates will have on our school system. This ongoing collaboration continues to guide our decision-making as students return to classrooms for in-person instruction.
