Instructional Paraprofessional/Title I K-2 Science Lab

What a JOY to be a part of the McDavid-Jones family! My work here is truly one of the highlights of my life.

My family is very supportive of my work here at McDavid-Jones. Our children, Timothy and Ashley, are now working on their master's degrees and are the greatest treasures of our life. Robert, my husband and love of my life of 40 years, is my #1 helper and is always so patient with allowing me to try out our experiments at home. You'll be happy to know that I haven't blown up my family or the Science Lab yet!!

The town of Citronelle has always been home to me. I've served in local churches as pianist as well as Music Director for over 33 years and taught music for 40 years. Citronelle is a wonderful place to live and raise a family. I am truly blessed!!

I help out in the K-2 Computer Lab each morning, but after lunch I work in the Science Labs at our school. We actually have two Labs. One for K-2 students and one for 3-5 students. I teach K-2 Labs one week and 3-5 Labs the next week. In our work in the Science Labs your students accomplish all of the Alabama Course of Studies requirements for Science...and we always, always have fun!!

Our school is a member of the the Clean Campus Crusade. We recycle and our litter free campus makes us happy and proud to take care of our environment. We are proud to be one of only a couple of schools in the state to be active in school-wide Classroom In The Forest, school-wide 4H, and school-wide Junior Master Gardener. We rely heavily on our parent volunteers to help us achieve these goals. Don't be shy parents...we always welcome your help at McDavid-Jones! 

Thank you for sharing your children with us here at McDavid-Jones. We are honored for your trust.
