5th Grade Lead Teacher
Hello everyone, my name is Emily Jones and I am thrilled to be joining the CWC Mar Vista family as a fifth grade lead teacher.
I was born and raised in an educational family in Bakersfield, CA. For college, I attended Chapman University where I received an Integrated Educational Studies degree with minors in English and Art History. After college, I returned back home where I had the privilege of teaching for 7 years in both the charter and public school sectors. Feeling ready for a change and inspired to do more, I moved to Los Angeles this past summer.
What instantly drew me to CWC Mar Vista was its sense of Community. Even with being several hours away from my friends and family, I felt at home. I immediately felt like I belonged and I was here for a greater purpose. It is this sense of community I plan to make the very foundation within my own classroom this year.
In my spare time outside of the classroom, you can find me enjoying the sunshine with my dog, Nash, playing and watching sports, or enjoying a meal with my closest friends and family.
Thank you for the warm welcome and I look forward to embarking on this journey with you all!
