Mrs. April Jones
Welcome to my site. My name is Mrs. April Jones and I am looking forward to an exciting year at Metzger Middle School!
Allow me to introduce myself; I am an Arizona native, grew up in Tucson, and moved to San Antonio from Phoenix. I am a wife, mother of two beautiful and accomplished daughters, and a teacher. I love reading, spending time with my family, and traveling with my husband, who is also a teacher.
I received my Bachelor of Arts in Sociology from Arizona State University. I chose to further my education by earning a Masters of Arts in Teaching with an emphasis in Special Education and then earned another Masters of Education with an emphasis in Reading from Grand Canyon University. I love teaching and began in 2004; I truly enjoy teaching middle school. Prior to teaching middle school, I taught high school English in Arizona and at a local high school.
I am excited about this new school year and helping each student become proficient readers.
