Ms. Jones

     I began my teaching career in Charlotte-Mecklenburg School District at Sharon Elementary School where I taught fifth grade and served as Lead Teacher. Three years later, I moved to Charleston to begin work as a fourth grade teacher at C.C. Blaney. Over the next several years, I taught fifth grade and held an administrative internship at Mary Ford Elementary, as well as taught sixth grade and middle school math at Jane Edwards Elementary while serving as the school’s textbook coordinator and PBIS Lead. I departed the classroom in 2013 for one year to work for the district’s Office of Teacher Effectiveness as a professional development coordinator. The following school year, I joined the staff of Memminger where I served for the past four years as the vice principal.

     I have been a member of several South Carolina Department of Education cohorts including the Aspiring Principals Program (DAPP), Foundations in School Leadership (FSL), and the Assistant Principal Program for Leadership Excellence (APPLE). Additionally, I have participated in Flip Flippen’s Capturing Kids’ Hearts training and Social and Emotional Learning (SEL) training.

     I hold a Bachelor of Arts in Elementary Education from Johnson C. Smith University and a Master of Education in Elementary Leadership and Supervision from The Citadel.

     I’m joining Goodwin’s staff and look forward to establishing relationships with all of our valued stakeholders. I believe that every child deserves the very best we, as a school, have to offer and through partnerships between the school, parents, and community every child can meet their fullest potential. As principal of Goodwin Elementary, my goal is to continue to provide a quality education to every child so we can continue our mission of preparing students who are equipped with the world class skills necessary to be college and career ready.

With that being said, “Welcome to the 2018-19 school year!”
