Bio

Hello.  My name is Laura Jones.  I received my Bachelor's degree from ETSU in Special Education and a Minor in Bluegrass, Old-Time, and Country music. I taught 6th, 7th, and 8th grade in Knox Co. schools for 4.5 years in a variety of different settings. I then returned to my hometown of Hawkins Co. in January of 2015. 

I am very excited for my 8th year of teaching during the 2017-2018 school year.  I look forward to work with my students on academic skills while incorporating life skills, functional skills, social skills, and behavioral skills into the curriculum.  I believe all students learn in different ways, and it is important to instill a love for learning at a young age.  Building parent-student-teacher relationships is key to a successful education and learning experience for every child.
