"A former colleague wrote of Ms. Jones, 'She is a very accomplished English teacher. She has superior knowledge of both literature and grammar and uses a variety of methods to teach both areas. She does a wonderful job requiring students to engage in rigorous study but balances this with the needs of her students.' As Ms. Jones has been at NCS for the past five years, I personally have seen Ms. Jones skillfully work with a range of students and provide outstanding instruction and support on a daily basis. At the heart of this is her deep care for students and her subject matter. Often well after school is over and a good portion of many weekends, Ms. Jones is hard at work, perfecting her craft, reading for pleasure and to improve her curriculum, she is planning her lessons, and perhaps above all, she is grading and assessing and providing meaningful feedback on student work."
We congratulate Ms. Jones on this honor and appreciate her dedication to our students and their success in English, writing and theatre. To watch the award ceremony, visit our YouTube channel.
