Jones_april_faculty April Jones has over twenty years of experience in teaching and tutoring in a variety of settings in K-12th grade through private, public, catholic, classical Christian schools, and homeschooling her daughters. She graduated from Louisiana State University with a B.S. in Elementary Education: K-8, which she used for fulfilling her love to teach in the middle school grade levels, specifically in math. Besides teaching math full-time, April has also taught middle school history and science, high school personal finance/life skills and digital publications, and also served as a math specialist for K-8th grade students. Outside of teaching, April enjoys event planning, arts and crafts, working out, helping with volleyball, dramas, and anything her daughters are involved in for their extra-curricular activities. April grew up in a Christian home, attending a Christian school from her grammar to high school years. Seeing the fruits of her family, teachers, and friends in the Christian community around her led April to commit herself to follow the will of the Lord for her life at the age of fifteen. She has used the talents God has given her for teaching to glorify Him. April met her husband Paul in church youth group as leaders and they have served in either Christian education or churches together for the past twenty-three years. They have three daughters: Meghan is graduating high school this year with dreams of becoming an animator for Disney, Ayla is entering 8th grade with acting, volleyball or soccer always on her mind, and Holly is entering 5th grade with a passion for basketball, art, and fashion/hair design. Their family time is spent with games, movies, puzzles, fire-pit nights and traveling anytime they can, especially to the mountains. April finds joy in seeing a child’s face light up with enthusiasm while learning!
