Hi! My name is Lisa Jones and I am excited for the 2021-2022 school year to begin. This is my 16th year in education and my 8th 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 fourth year as the K-1 Resource teacher. I love working with the kids in small groups and establishing those positive relationships with them. The kindergarteners and first graders are so much fun to have in class. We can be silly and sing and dance, yet still learn in the process. A little more about me....I have an amazing fiance whom I have planned a wedding with for April 2022 and we have 6 furbabies; Chloe, Gizmo, Ginger, Sassy and Piney and our newest addition, a kitten named Cheddar. 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 Lebanon Yellowjackets (my nephew attends school there), the St. Louis Cardinals and MIZZOU teams. I am looking forward working with your child and you this year as we learn that "We are a rainbow of possibilities."
