Degrees and Certifications:

Mrs. Kathy Jones

I am so excited to be back in the classroom! After 29 years of experience, I decided to retire from the Sumter School District due to a move to the Lugoff area. This summer I felt my heart leading me back to the classroom.  I got the call soon after that, and I accepted this position.  I’m thrilled to announce that I will be getting married this Labor Day! Needless to say, it has been a whirlwind of a start to the new school year.

I am a Carolina graduate (Go Gamecocks) and have two grown children.  I have 19 year of experience teaching ELA and 10 years in social studies. The majority of my teaching has been at the 6th grade level.  Teaching is so much more than a career to me. It is “heart work”.  

I sincerely look forward to working with students and parents this year as I try to impart my love of reading and writing to my students. I will give the students a caring and challenging environment in which to grow during their first year in middle school.
