Mrs. Carolyn Jones
I am very excited to be your child's 5th grade teacher this year! I love what I do and make it my daily goal to provide my students with a fun, personalized, safe and very interactive learning environment. My goal is that your child will develop a love of learning that they will take with them as they continue their educational journey. The best way to contact me is through my email at firstname.lastname@example.org. I will keep my Landing Page updated each week with announcements, playlists for each subject, contact information, helpful links and our class schedule.
A bit about me:
I grew up in Southern California and joined the Army as an Orthopedic Technician immediately out of high school. I had twenty successful years of service before I retired as a First Sergeant in 2008. While I was on active duty I earned my Bachelors of Science in Orthopedics from Wayland Baptist University. Immediately after retirement, I participated in the Troops to Teachers program and earned my teaching certification through ACT San Antonio. I am certified in Elementary Education and Special Education. I also have a Math Cohort Certification from UCCS.
I began teaching fourth grade in Texas in August 2008, just three months after retirement. I quickly found my niche and knew that I was meant to teach. I taught in Texas for a couple of years before our family had a military change of station to Colorado. This year is my 9th year at Falcon Elementary and my 7th year as a fifth grade teacher. I have definitely found my happy place and absolutely love what I do!
My husband is an active duty Soldier with 33 years of service. He is currently stationed at Space Command and will finally retire in the fall. We are the proud parents of five amazing adult children, and grandparents to four boys. Our family loves spending time together outdoors. Hiking and paddle boarding are our favorite Colorado activities. We also love animals, traveling and eating together.
