Mrs. Randi Jones
Hello MECME family! I am from the great city of Chicago, IL. I received my Bachelor's degree in American Sign Language and Photography from Columbia College and my Master's degree from New York University in Teaching English to Speakers of Other Languages. I have had the privilege of teaching English as a Second Language in Wake County for the past 12 years. This is my first year at Millbrook Elementary, and I am thrilled to be here as the coordinator of our new magnet theme, Environmental and Community Connections. Although I am new to this position, I am no stranger to Millbrook, because I have been a parent here for the past six years!
My husband, Doug, and I have two children, Lila and Ezra. Lila completed fifth grade at Millbrook last year and Ezra is a current fourth grader. We have been living in Raleigh since 2005, and have really enjoyed making this city our home. Together as a family we enjoy hiking, traveling, attending local events, watching the Blackhawks (on TV of course), and spending time with our two saint bernards, Heidi and Gretchen, and our boxer, Blondi.
Why I am excited about our theme, Environmental and Community Connections...
I'm excited about the theme because it encourages students to explore, experience, inquire and enjoy the natural world around them. It connects all of these opportunities to what they need to know in order to develop into knowledgeable and caring citizens with the tools and passion to change the world.
