Mrs. Tonya Jones
Hi, my name is Tonya Jones, welcome to 4th grade at Powhatan Elementary. 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 have been a teacher for nearly 10 years. 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 have been inducted into 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 have 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 by who and where they are on their educational journey. I believe learning best takes place in a positive, safe environment that is full of joy and compassion. Effective learning requires 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 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 Class Dojo, telephone 919-553-3259 or email email@example.com. Please do not hesitate to contact me. I look forward to teaching your children this year and helping them to reach their fullest potential.
