Mr. Josh Jones
Welcome, I'm glad you're stopping by. I'm Mr. Jones and it's a privilege to be at LPS. I'm looking forward to teaching Chemistry and Pre-AP Chemistry this year. I believe it's the branch of science that connects them all. This will be my sixth year teaching and my fourth year at LPS. Chemistry will be taught using the PBL method which I believe is the best way to teach any science because of it's real-world application. More than likely whatever our students grow up doing (science field or not), they will be working on projects with others and using scientific skills such as critical thinking, observation, predicting, data analysis, and more.
Before teaching, I was a Medical Technologist working in a large hospital lab and later in a facility specializing in Oncology (Cancer). I then received my Masters in Christian Education with a concentration in Marriage and Family Counseling while being a Youth Minister & Teacher. Shortly after that, I owned two companies where I learned real-world leadership skills and what employers need/want from their future employees.
Of my six years in education, I have taught 8th grade General Science, IPC, Chemistry, Physics, Biology, Science test prep, Health and Human Services, as well as becoming CTE Director. I have also received my Science Composite 8-12, ESL 6-12, and Principal EC-12 certifications. You can say I have a love of learning.
My most important thing on earth is my family. I've been married to an amazing woman, Kristi, for 15 years. We have the joy of raising four (yes, four) wonderful children (who love science). As a family, we love to camp, kayak, go fishing, cook, and garden. We hope to someday have a small sustainable farm with lots of chickens and goats.
I look forward to teaching you this year!
