Ms. Ericka Jones-Hinds
My name is Ericka Jones-Hinds. I am an ESL/ELAR teacher at Metzger Middle School. I am a mother of four handsome and talented boys, a sister of an older sister and younger brother, an aunt of many nieces and nephews and a daughter of a wonderful and caring mother.
I started my teaching journey as a substitute teacher for DOD schools all over the United States, primarily in the south east region. I did this for about ten years while my husband traveled during his military career. I later decided to go back to school and get a Masters of Education degree with a focus in ESL education. I moved to Texas later on in my husband's military career and got my additional certification in English Language Arts and Reading.
I have a passion for language learning and reading and writing. I love teaching and want to see my students excel to their highest potential. I shrive to break the achievement gap in all struggling learners. I am confident that this year students can and will, "Imagine with all their minds, believe with all their hearts and achieve with all their might!"
Ready for a great school year!
