Ms. Katie Jones
My name is Katie Jones and I am a 4th grade teacher here at TIS! I am so excited to be starting my 8th year at TIS and look forward to what the new year will hold. I was raised in Montevallo and come from a long line of educators, so I am lucky to be a local. I graduated with my Bachelor's in Elementary Education from the University of South Alabama in 2010. I also earned my Master's from the University of Alabama at Birmingham last fall (Aug. 2016). I believe in the importance of being a life-long learner and strive to instill that passion within my students.
I love to spend time with my friends and family and enjoy making a competition out of almost anything. I'm also a huge animal lover and take my dogs, Diggy and Rufus, on long walks every chance I get. I have taught math at TIS since I started. I love teaching math and am always so excited to see how far our students grow each year. Growing and learning from and with my students each year is always such an adventure and I am excited to begin this journey again. Please let me know if there is anything I can do for your or if you have any questions that I can help you with!
