Mr. Jones

My name is Mr. Jones, and I'll be your IGCSE English II and AS English Language teacher for the upcoming school year. I look forward to getting to know you and guiding your child through a successful school year.

First, allow me to share a little about myself. Teaching is my life's passion, and I have been instructing middle and high school students for 13 years. This is my first year working at Aiken High School, and in my two previous years, I worked at Schofield Middle. I have won the Teacher of the Year (2017), the Golden Apple Award (2017), and the Lifetime Impact Award (2019 and 2020). I have coached Tennis (2019), sponsored the Student Government Association (2017-2019), and produced the Yearbook (2019-2023) for Greenbrier High School in my previous county. 

My years of experience as a teacher have shaped a teaching philosophy that guides how I help my students succeed in the classroom and beyond. Their success begins with making them comfortable in the classroom, so I strive to create an environment where my students feel safe and can be themselves without judgment. I encourage them to share their questions and opinions in an unbiased and open environment. I strive to create a space for students to explore their learning styles.

My goal is to host regular parent/teacher conferences and ensure you're aware of student progress throughout the school year. Thank you so much for taking the time to read this. Please reach out if you have any questions or concerns. Please consider registering for my weekly reminders via the Remind app codes below. I am looking forward to a productive and successful school year!
