My name is Natalie Jones. This is my third year teaching and my first at COA. I graduated from Sacramento State University and obtained my credential through Chapman/Brandman University.
I've been married to my best friend, Michael, for 14 years and we have three beautiful children. Our family's favorite pastime is going to Disneyland. We love to camp and visit the beach to boogie board, especially in Santa Cruz. I enjoy gardening with the kids and hanging out with our two huskies and two cats in our down time.
I believe that all students can learn and excel at whatever they put their mind to. I encourage students to develop a lifelong love of reading and writing that stretches beyond the classroom and brings them to places they never imagined through books. Learning to critically analyze literature and develop their own stories and ideas will be one of our focuses throughout the year.
