Ms. Lisa Jones

Hi!  My name is Lisa Jones and I am excited for the 2023-2024 school year to begin.  This is my 18th year in education and my 10th year at Freedom Elementary.  I was born and raised in the Lebanon area and graduated from high school there. I attended Drury University and then University of Cincinnati, where I obtained my Bachelor's Degree in Early Childhood Education. I was the Director and Teacher at Tri-County Head Start in Richland before becoming a special needs para at Freedom Elementary in 2013.  I am beginning my 6th year teaching at Freedom and am excited about moving from Special Education to Kindergarten! I love establishing positive relationships with my students and buidling a little family of learners as we work our way through the school year. Kindergarteners are so much fun and we are going to have the best year ever!   A little more about me....I have an amazing fiance who was born and raised in this area and we share 4 furbabies; Chloe, Ginger, Sassy and Piney.  In my free time, I enjoy anything that gets me outdoors (especially kayaking and planting flowers), cooking, reading, painting, and spending time with my friends and family.  I also enjoy cheering on the football team and marching band at the  University of Central Missouri at Warrensburg as my nephew just started his sophomore year there. I am furthering my education by pursuing my Math Specialist certificate from Mizzou and have lots of fun, hands-on math lessons planned for my students as I want them to love and look forward to Math as much as I do.  I am looking forward to working with your child, as well as with you this year! As a team we can make great growth and watch your child blossom together!
