Tyler Jones, First Grade Teacher at Whittier Elementary

I enjoy working in this district, primarily, because it has helped me gain a wealth of knowledge through professional development to broaden my experience as a teacher. Through the professional development sessions, I have perfected my teaching skills of curriculum standards and teaching strategies to meet the needs of my students. Increasing my competency allows me to better serve my students and aid in the advancement of their education. It is my desire to consistently provide a classroom that is welcoming, respectful, and supportive. I am passionate and committed to ensuring that my influence reaches far beyond the doors of my classroom, which is why I am committed to connecting with each student’s family. I pride myself on being an approachable collaborator and communicator to ensure I provide my students with an optimal education.
