I am Emma Jones, the new high school social studies teacher. This will be my sixth year teaching. I am coming from Johnson-Stanton County where I taught the last five years. I grew up in Quinter, KS, and graduated with my degree from Kansas Wesleyan University. I am married to Kevin Jones, the new math teacher and we have a baby boy named Oliver who was born in April. I am excited to work with the students and staff in this school district, and to get to know the community.
