Welcome to 6th grade math!  I am Penny Jones and can't wait to begin my second year at Creekside Park Junior High School!  This will be my 26th year of teaching.  I earned a bachelors degree at Kansas State University and a M. Ed at University of Houston in Administration and Supervision.  I am also a certified gifted and talented and English as a Second Language.   I am passionate about teaching math and served as a Math Specialist for 14 years before moving to The Woodlands.

My goal is to have a personal relationship with each and every student.   I want to understand their needs and learning styles so that I can help them excel and reach their maximum potential.   Our classroom is a TEAM and each and every mathlete will bring strengths to the math playing field.  Every team must have a coach, so the students will refer to me as Coach Jones, their math coach.  Every coach needs to have their assistant coach, so I will be choosing an assistant coach every week from the class based on behavior, participation, and effort. 

I am looking forward to an exciting year and building a wonderful team of parents and students!

Supplies for Math Class

Hi Parents!
Just a friendly reminder that all students need to have a black expo marker (no color) and a pack of colored highlighters for taking notes in their MAN.  I have a lot of students using my supplies, which will soon run out.  Thank you so much!
