Degrees and Certifications:
Mrs. Megan Jones
Welcome to Core + More Math at Parkview! My name is Megan Jones, and I have been teaching in Ankeny since 2007. I am a graduate of Iowa State University with a Bachelor’s of Science in Education (Elementary Education), emphasis in Mathematics, and Reading Endorsement. During the summer of 2009 I graduated with my Master's Degree from Viterbo University.
I have several key beliefs about education that guide all I do in our classroom. First, school should be a safe place where the child feels comfortable and confident. Our classroom is structured around respect and responsibility to help support this belief. Second, students should take an active role in the learning process. Students will be challenged to make connections and apply new information to provide a purpose and relevancy. Finally, I believe meeting the personal needs and learning styles of each student is essential in quality education. I try to utilize a balance of learning methods in the classroom in order to meet all learning styles.
I enjoy teaching because of the new and exciting challenges each day brings. There never seems to be a dull moment!
In my free time I enjoy running, swimming, doing craft projects, spending time with my family, and of course cheering on Iowa State – Go Cyclones!
