Mrs. Jones has been a homeschooling mother since 2009.  After receiving a B.S. in Accounting and an M.Acc., with a concentration in Information Systems, from the University of Tennessee in 1993, she enjoyed a consulting career with Deloitte and Touche, LLP.  During her consulting tenure, she developed an interest in the human side of information systems and developed expertise in organizational development, employee continuing education, team building, and leadership training.  After staying home with her first-born child for two years, Mrs. Jones became a certified Myers-Briggs consultant and led leadership classes and retreats for youth and adults in ecumenical and business settings.  Her goal was to help participants identify their unique vocational gifts, using Myers-Briggs as one tool in developing that understanding.  In 2010, Mrs. Jones received an M.Div. from Candler School of Theology at Emory University, with certificates in Religious Education and Women in Theology and Ministry, where she continued to examine how our unique vocational gifts impact our learning styles, our vocational choices, and our interactions with and contributions to the communities in which we work, live, and serve.  Bridging two of her passions, Mrs. Jones wrote her thesis on spirituality in the context of popular children’s literature. After graduation in 2010, Mrs. Jones served on church staff or in lay leadership positions related to spiritual formation, finding particular joy in creating interactive, multidisciplinary, multisensory, and multigeneration programming. She previously taught AP Psychology in 2015-2016. All students from her class who chose to take the AP Psychology exam received grades that would indicate proficiency and could be accepted for college credit, where applicable.
