Jamelle Jones is a teacher who learns from her colleagues, her students, and her community. After completing her B.A. in Literature/Writing at the University of California, San Diego, Jamelle stayed at UCSD to receive her M.Ed in Teaching and Learning and Multiple Subject Teaching Credential. She later received her second M.Ed in Educational Leadership from the HTH Graduate School of Education and has traveled as an International Teacher Leader in the HTH on the Road program to Japan and Israel. Jamelle truly loves being a part of the High Tech Community. She completed undergraduate work at HTeCV during the school’s opening year in 2011 and later became a part of HTeNC’s founding faculty as an Academic Coach and Aftercare Coordinator in 2013/2014. She is now teaching first grade at HTeNC and is excited to begin another year. Her favorite moments occur when she is celebrating her students or laughing with her students throughout the day. When Jamelle is not working, you will find her composing music, finding a sweet orange, reading a great book, eating green apples with peanut butter, thinking some complex thought, or spending time with friends and family.
