Mrs. Bethany Jones
I have been an exceptional children's teacher at Smithfield-Selma High School since 2004. I graduated from SSS, attended Appalachian State University for my undergraduate degree, East Carolina University for my graduate degree. I am Nationally Board Certified. I am a club advisor for Unified Spartans, a group of students with and without intellectual disabilities that strive for inclusion.
In our class we work hard to promote independence and relevant learning. We focus on functional academics--a lovely mix of age appropriate curriculum and skills to provide practical application of everyday life. To do this, students are responsible for making coffee for staff each day and lunch each week. Students go to Walmart to purchase items to continue the project. Field trips are important for students to practice the lessons they've learned. Throughout the school year there will be opportunities for community outings.
Our class is a team of students and staff that promote a strong work ethic and positive learning experiences.
