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!
