Degrees and Certifications:
I am happy to introduce myself as OPA's 9th grade biology teacher. My goal in my role is to provide a comprehensive education to each student while building confidence and trust within the classroom.To assist in this process, I would like to provide you with some background information about myself.
My name is Ms. Jamie Jones and I grew up in Riverside, NJ— a small, 1-square mile town in South Jersey, just outside of Philadelphia. In my free time you can find me hiking with my Australian Shepherd named Lady, reading, playing softball, or cheering on the Flyers!
I earned my Bachelor of Science in Interdisciplinary Studies with a focus in Biology and Environmental Studies from Coastal Carolina University in South Carolina in 2013.
My academic background is in biology and environmental science. While studying, I guest taught Environmental Science at the Coastal Montessori School in Pawley’s Island, SC. After graduation, I taught English as a Second Language and Environmental Principals in Ulsan, South Korea. Upon returning to the United States, I began a 3-year career as an Environmental Scientist, where I gained hands on experience in the field of biology. I am thrilled to be back in education and applying my science and education experience to the curriculum.
