Mrs. Armida Jones
Hi, my name is Armida Jones and I am thrilled to be teaching Kindergarten here at Polenta Elementary again this year! I graduated from Appalachian State University with a Bachelor of Science in Psychology. Go Mountaineers! I have been married to my high school sweet heart for ten plus years. We have an almost four year old, our precious ladybug Mia. We welcomed our Christmas baby Bo this past year, he is growing so fast! I love traveling and have been on several road trips across the country. I can't wait for my next opportunity to travel, hopefully to the west coast. I am so excited to be following my heart and teaching our youth. I hope everyone has a wonderful summer! I am certain we will all be so ready to come back to school in the fall!!
