Mrs. Sheila Jones

This my first year with SPARK Academy and with Athens City Schools. I teach 1st grade and am so excited to be a part of the SPARK team! I previously taught 3rd grade for 6 years at Helena Intermediate School in Shelby County. I have been married for 17 years to my husband, James, who works at Ardmore High School as a Technology Facilitator/Instructional Partner. We have one son named Luke who is starting kindergarten at SPARK this year! My husband and I both grew up in Lauderdale County and I graduated from Brooks High School in 1995. We both attended Auburn University where I earned a degree in Forestry and James received his education degree. After a few years working in various fields, I returned to school and earned a post-baccalaureate degree in early elementary education and elementary education from Western Governor's University. We enjoy camping, backpacking and renovating our home.
