Biography

My name is Jeania Jones.  I am a Professor in Residence for University of North Florida Professional Development School, Woodland Acres Elementary in Duval County.  I am also a Clinical Supervisor for teacher candidates and an Instructor of Childhood Education, Literacy and TESOL.  I was born in Honolulu, Hawaii and moved to Jacksonville, Florida 13 years ago, from Mobile, Alabama, to pursue a career in Elementary Education.  I received my BA in Elementary (PreK-3rd) Education from University of North Florida and MA in Teaching and Learning from Nova Southeastern University.  I began teaching in Duval Public Schools, immediately following my internship at Annie R. Morgan Elementary. During my 5 years at Annie R. Morgan, I was a 1st-3rd grade teacher, mentor, literacy lead teacher, and mentor teacher for teacher candidates.  I then transferred to Windy Hill Elementary to continue my love for teaching, as a 3rd grade ELA teacher, mentor, grade-level chair, and mentor teacher for teacher candidates.   I have taught inclusion classes as well as ESOL classes.  While in the school system, I enjoyed the challenge of creating rigorous, yet engaging and “outside of the box”, learning experiences for my students.  I also loved the influence and impact I had on educating and mentoring teacher candidates that I became an instructor at the University of North Florida in the Childhood Education, Literacy, and TESOL department.
