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 tonyajones@johnston.k12.nc.us. Please do not hesitate to contact me. I look forward to teaching your children this year and helping them to reach their fullest potential.



Sincerely,

Mrs. Jones
