I have had the privilege of teaching children and influencing lives for over 25 years.  During that tenure, I have taught kindergarten, first grade, and third grade, but currently I work in a small group setting reinforcing skills in math and reading.  I love what I do and am very grateful to have the opportunity to have a positive impact on children I teach. 
     I am married to Charles Nails and have to children Hunter and Taylor.  I am also the girl's basketball coach at Southside High School.

                                  What is Title 1?

Title I is a federally funded program that is designed to support state and local schools in order to reinforce and amplify efforts to improve teaching and learning for students who are farthest from meeting state standards. The John S. Jones Title I schoolwide program is based on effective means of improving student achievement and is designed to include strategies to support parental involvement.
