It always bothered Ms. Jones that so many statistics showed that students disliked math, when she on the other hand really enjoyed it. Ms. Jones became a math teacher because she “wanted to show students that the subject was fun and [necessary] to succeed in life”. Ms. Jones imagines that in her classroom, “Math is a sport. I am the coach. I want to coach the best students in the subject and go all the way to the ‘Mathletic Bowl of Life’”.

While teaching College Algebra and Pre-Calculus I & II at CBGS, Ms. Jones crosses curriculum with the science classes. This helps students comprehend varied applications of math. “If you can run through the sequence of a math problem logically,” she says, “then you’re ready to take on the world”. She loves helping the next generation to become excited about mathematics.

juliajonesCBGS also helped Ms. Jones become interested in life on the water. She had never boated before coming to work at CBGS, and now she is on the water from April to December fishing and crabbing. On dry land, Ms. Jones also cares for her pet potbelly pig named Apple.
