Welcome to the 2021-2022 School Year!
My name is Jenifer Jones, and I will be your 6th grade Reading & Language Arts teacher. This is my 14th year teaching, and my 3rd year at SIS. I have taught in Copperas Cove ISD, Ft. Worth ISD, Castleberry ISD, and Keller ISD. I started my career teaching 8th grade math & coaching volleyball & track. I have taught many things in my years including 6th reading & social studies; 7th writing, math & science; 8th ELAR, math & science; and 9-12 professional communications. I have also been a special education co-teacher and taught beginning English Learners through math & science. The first half of my career I also coached volleyball, track & girls powerlifting.
I graduated from the University of North Texas and have been a porcupine at heart my entire life. I grew up in Springtown and have, once again, found "home" in returning to Springtown and teaching at SIS. Our SIS family has so many wonderful people ready to give their best everyday and I couldn't be happier with those I work with and the kids at our campus!
I love being able to connect with students and show them how learning can be fun. My goal is to empower every student to become the best person they can be!
I have 2 sons. Tyler is 25 and Austin is 20.
I also believe that communication is a very important piece to being successful. I will advocate for your child in order for them to be the best they can be. I will hold them accountable for their actions & encourage them in the following virtues: Courage, Gratitude, Forgiveness & Compassion in action.
I look forward to connecting with each of you! If you have any questions or concerns, please do not hesitate to contact me.
