Mrs. Kathy Jones
I felt the calling to make special education my lifelong work early in my life. My father had a sister with special needs, and she grew up in an era when such children were placed in and "warehoused" in institutions where they received no education or training. I knew, even as a child, that this was not right, and that ALL children could learn. I knew exactly what I wanted to do when I grew up.
I earned a B.A. (Northwest Nazarene University, 1978) and a M.A. Ed. (Boise State University, 1982) in both special and elementary education. I have taught both general education (4th grade) and special education in Idaho, Texas, and Washington, and am currently enjoying my 33rd year of teaching.
