Ms. Ciara Jones, Kindergarten Teacher
College: University of North Texas.
Teaching History: This is my 7th year teaching. I taught Kindergarten in Carrollton Texas for two years and this will be by fifth year teaching pre-k in Plano.
Family: I have an older brother and awesome parents who live in Irving Texas, we are close tight knit family. I also consider good friends members of my small family!
Interests/Hobbies Outside of School: I love spending time with friends and family as well as going to movies and binge watching TV shows.
Why did you want to start the IB PYP at Huffman? I was really interested in this explorative approach to teaching and learning. I love that it allows the students the ability to make choices and inquire rather than the teacher being the focus.
