Academy Teacher of the Year 2019-2020


Congratulations to our 2019-2020 Teacher of the Year Mr. Doug Jones. Mr. Jones has been at the Academy for five years. His sixth grade Science classroom is always a hub of creativity and student engagement. Mr. Jones believes in every student, everyday, and gives them multiple ways to show successful mastery of scientific concepts. If you walk into his classroom you may see students exploring instruments to learn about vibration, or writing songs to show their understanding of the properties of matter. He uses drama strategies to create a well ordered nurturing learning environment and uses visual art to help students learn scientific observation. Well known throughout the building for being a leader in arts integration and a leader in instructional technology he is always willing to lend a hand. Congratulations Mr. Jones, we are so honored to have you at the Academy.
