Jones says this past year has truly been a challenge because of COVID-19 and the way teachers have had to adapt to teaching their kids virtually and not having the personal interaction that she knew her kindergarten babies needed. She says she want to thank those parents who worked with her and the MPS teachers and students making sure their children would connect virtually and in person classroom wouldn’t fall behind in their learning.
Her principal Ms. Lolita Osborne says she’s proud of Ms. Jones being named MPS Teacher of the Year and it speaks volumes about the great teaching staff a Chisholm Elementary. They both say they look forward to their students returning to in-person learning in the classroom and says they have learned a lot since last March when the pandemic started.
