Ms. Haley Jones

Welcome to our Third Grade Classroom! I am very excited about this school year. I can’t wait to work with your third grader. I have a lot of exciting activities planned and look forward to a great year.

My name is Haley Jones. I graduated from Drury University with a bachelor’s degree in Elementary Education in 2011, Lindenwood University with a master’s degree in Educational Administration in 2013 and I am currently attending Mizzou for a specialist degree in Mathematics. I have lived in Crocker for most of my life. I am a graduate of Crocker High in 2005. I have one son; Parker. This is my thirteenth year teaching. I previously taught first grade for 10 years and third grade for 2. 

I want all students to thrive in my classroom. Students are expected to do their best. I will do my best to motivate all students. By doing this, I look forward to creating a classroom full of respectful learners. Many of the daily activities in the classroom will consist of students working together in cooperative groups. I want all students to be comfortable communicating with each other and learning from each other, as well as from myself.

3rd grade is a huge transition from the primary grades (Kinder-2nd) to the intermediate grades (3rd-5th). We will spend a lot of time working on developing strong work habits, organizational skills, and increasing student responsibility!

Communication is very important in creating great parent-teacher relationships. Parents, I will do my best to keep you informed of your child’s progress. I will be sending home the weekly newsletter, homework assignments, and information on upcoming events every Friday. There will be times throughout the year when parents can volunteer to help out on field trips or help in the classroom.

I know that teaching your child is a huge responsibility and I will do my best to create a safe environment full of discovery and learning. If you have any questions, please feel free to send messages on REMIND, notes to school, contact me by e-mail hjones@waynesville.k12.mo.us or by phone 573-842-2150.

Once again, welcome to third grade! Let's work together to make this the best year ever!
