Mr. Ronald E. Jones

I was born at a very young age... In a log cabin in Illinois...during a "Dark and Stormy Night"... It was the best of times, it was the worst of times... Call me Ishmael... Who is John Galt? (btw, I can't spell)

All seriousness aside, I have been teaching since 1996, graduated Summa Cum Laud from NCSU in 1995, hold a Masters in Social Studies education, was National Board Certified, was a North Carolina Certified Paralegal and have been teaching in IB schools since 1998.

I love what I do.  I love unscrewing the tops of skulls and messing with the brains of my students.

I believe that "a person is smart, but people are dumb, panicky and dangerous..." (classic quote from Men in Black https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kkCwFkOZoOY) "Imagine what you will know tomorrow."

I believe that the one (of two) thing(s) that sets humans apart from animals is the creation of art.

I believe that films are the greatest contribution to art that 20th C. humans have made. 

I believe that the purpose of Social Studies education is to answer the question "Why do people act the way they do?" Films can help.

I believe that if we can understand where people come from (physically, intellectually and spiritually), we can figure out where we ALL are going.

I believe that to whom much is given, much is required.

I believe that the sounds that squeeky shoes make when someone is walking is NOT part of their attempt to communicate with us. 

  • For the 2018-19 school year I will be teaching:

    • Two sections of IB History of the Americas for Juniors, 4th period on both A & B days.
    • Two sections of IB History of the Americas for Seniors, 1st & 3rd period B-Days.
    • Two sections of Theory of Knowledge (TOK) for Juniors on 1st & 3rd periods A-Day.

    BTW,  ALL DAILY CLASSWORK, PROJECTS, ESSAY ASSIGNMENTS WILL BE POSTED ON EACH CLASS' GOOGLE.CLASSROOM. SO PLEASE, KEEP TRACK OF THINGS FROM THERE.
