Ms. Jessica Jones

My name is Jessica Jones (YES... LIKE THE SUPERHERO!) and I am an EC Inclusion teacher here at Andrews High School. I love reading, writing, and programming. On a good day, I can be found on the side of a mountain.

I have a Bachelor's degree in Sociology from UNC Chapel Hill, and I have been working with students and children since 2009. I have been an Early Childhood teacher since 2013. Last year was my first year supporting Andrews students. I look forward to getting back to serving again in a new capacity this year.

The classes I support during the Fall 2020 semester are English I, English II, English IV, Civics and Economics, and American History II. I also provide support to students on my EC Caseload. I look forward to a new school year and getting to know you better. I am here to help my students get through this unique learning experience and meet their IEP goals. Please be sure to sign up for my Remind (below) to get important course updates. Welcome to the 2020-21 School Year!

Course Description 

  • This course is designed to take the place of in person instruction while learning remotely due to COVID-19. For some of you, I will serve as a co-teacher in your course to help make the General Curriculum more accessible to you.

Student Expectations 

  • Students with Inclusion Services are expected to complete assignments by the due dates provided by both me and your General Education teacher. Each of these assignments will count towards your grade in the General Education class.
  • Students on my Caseload are expected to complete weekly Progress Monitoring meetings (scheduled through Microsoft Teams). After scheduling, please connect to the meetings on time, and/or please give 24 hours notice to reschedule a meeting.
  • Whenever possible, your meeting attendance will factor into your related course grade. (For instance, Progress Monitoring meetings focused on Reading goals will be included in your English class grades).
