Mrs. Sheila Jones

I have taught 1st grade at SPARK for 5 years and have loved meeting and growing with a new group of little people each year. This will be my 12th year as a classroom teacher with the first 6 years being a 3rd-grade teacher in Shelby County. In addition to my classroom time, I spent one year as an instructional aide in a K-2 severe and profound autism class. My husband and I have been married for 22 years. He is a math teacher at AMS and our son, Luke, is a 5th grader at AIS.  We both grew up in Lauderdale County, but we have also lived in Atlanta and Birmingham. We are proud to say that Athens has been our home for the past seven years. In our free time, we enjoy camping, mountain biking, and trail running.
