Welcome! My name is Coach Jones and I will be teaching 7th and 8th grade Social Studies. This is my 5th year teaching Social Studies. I am a native of McGregor, Texas. After graduating high school I attended Trinity Valley Community College and Stephen F. Austin on football scholarships. I have a B.S Liberal Studies and American History from Excelsior Ciollege and I will graduate in December 2019 with a Masters Degree in Sports Administration from Concordia University of Austin. I also spent 22 years in the United States Army before retiring in 2013. I have a 18 year daughter named Andrea that will be graduating this year and attending Texas State University in San Marcos, Texas.
I am excited to be teaching Social Studies to our kids this year. We are going to have a great year. This year we will be covering topics in 8th grade Social Studies from Exploration and Colonization through Reconstruction. This is a STARR tested subject so kids will be expected to be present and give their best effort. This class will be taught using video, interactive games, hands on assignments and classroom discussions. Kids will also be required at a minimum to have a journal and a pen. Go Tigers!!!
