Welcome to English as a Second Language!

My name is Staci Jones and I am one of 4 ESL teachers at Sycamore Elementary.  I graduated from the University of Tennessee with a Master's Degree in Early Childhood Education.  I spent the first few years of my career teaching kindergarten.  I then took off to be a stay-a-home mom for about 10 years.  While returning to work as a SPED para-professional I decided to pursue my ESL endorsement.    I've always had an interest in working with non-english speaking students.   I enjoy working at Sycamore and seeing the diversity of our school!
I enjoy teaching ESL because it gives me the opportunity to work with all grade levels K through 5th.  We work closely with classroom teachers helping students understand classroom content and improving their English.
