Mrs. Lori Jones

Hi, my name is Lori Jones. I teach Business Marketing classes and I am the Work-Based Learning Coordinator for Athens Renassiance School. I have been teaching 15 years. My classes include Career Preparatory, Marketing, Personal Finance, Ready to Work, Sports Marketing,and Work-Based Learning. I am a co-adviser for Distributive Educational Clubs of America (DECA).

I have a BS Degree in Business Administration from the University of Alabama Huntsville, a Masters Degree in Secondary Education from Alabama A & M University and an Ed.S in Teacher Leader from the University of West Alabama.

I have been married for 39 years and I have two children. My husband is an Optics Engineer working for the Department of Defense. My son is 29 years old, an Aerospace Engineer working and living in Tennessee. My daughter is 27 years old. She is an RN currently studying at UAB in the Certified Registered Nurse Anesthesia Program.

I love to read, travel, and watch college football - Roll Tide! I enjoy teaching because I believe I have a reason for doing what I’m doing. It helps bring value and meaning to my life. As a teacher I have an opportunity to inspire kids to think beyond their comfort zones and challenge them to reach their fullest potential.
