Degrees and Certifications:
Mrs. Barbara Jones
Greetings, I am Barbara Jones, Title I Teacher, at White Pine. I bring a wealth of thirty-two years of teaching experience to my job. I attended the University of Idaho where I obtained my Bachelor of Science degree in Elementary Education and minors in English and Geography. Over the years I have taught all grade levels from first through sixth grade. My focus as Title I teacher is to build reading fluency, extend comprehension skills, develop written expression knowledge and foster a love of reading with students I instruct. I love working at White Pine!
My hobbies include reading, walking, and traveling. I enjoy learning about our great country and am always planning my next adventure. I have had the opportunity to visit 25 out of the 50 states and numerous foreign countries. My last trip took me to the sunny beaches of Jamaica and the Grand Caymen Islands. Visiting the New England States will be next on my travel agenda.
My husband, Jack, and I have been married almost thirty years. We have one son, Jeff, who lives in Helena, Montana. We are head over heels in love with Markus, our eight month old grandson. Spoiling Markus is my second full time job.
If you have any questions or concerns feel free to contact me.
