Welcome to first grade! My name is Kathy Jones. This begins my 31st year in education. Throughout my career I taught 4th, 3rd, and 1st grades. I then left the classroom to teach Title 1 reading for seven years. My passion as a teacher lies in the area of reading. The Coeur d’Alene School District has been amazing to me and allowed me the opportunity to receive some of the finest literacy trainings available. Once I learned how children acquire the ability to read and also was taught how to diagnose and then provide interventions in reading, I became a literacy coach and spent five fantastic years working in all 10 elementary schools in Coeur d’Alene. As in any journey, I had a favorite spot and that was teaching 1st grade, and so it is fitting that I went full circle and am back doing what I love the most. I truly believe your children are gifts and I will do everything in my power to give them the best year possible.
My mother lives in the area. I have two wonderful step children, they are married with careers of their own. I am also blessed with two gorgeous step-granddaughters, ages 8 and 10. Family is so important and I feel fortunate to not only have an amazing family at home but also an amazing family at Ramsey. I look forward to building a family like atmosphere in the classroom with all of you this year.
Thank you for sharing your children with me.
