My Name is Penny Jones. I have worked for USD 501 for 8 years now. I have worked at HPHS for 7 years and now I am working on my 2nd year here at THS. I have two masters degrees, one in curriculum and instruction with the emphasis in educational technology, and another in adult distance learning. I started my doctorates in curriculum and instruction design, but due to health reasons wasn’t able to finish. I was born in Kansas City, Kansas, but I grew up in Kansas City, Missouri. I love kids and teaching, so I thought it would be smart to combine the two and have the best of both worlds.
I have an amazing daughter that attends Washburn University. She is a senior in college and loves being in college. She is quite an artist from painting to singing. She graduated from HPHS. We have 2 dogs that think they are children too. Out of all the things I have accomplished in my lifetime, being a parent is where the most pride has developed from. Thanks for sharing your kids with me.
