Superintendent William Mathews recognized Angela Jones at the Jan. 14 meeting, who was announced at the 2014 Teacher of the Year selection ceremony Nov. 7, which was held at Wells Elementary.
Jones teaches 10th- through 12th-grade math at Jones County High School and will now go on to compete at the state level.
Jones told the board members that she has been teaching for 26 years and has taught at seven different high schools, a community college and has even tutored from her home.
“I have taught math all the way up. I think what matters about being a good teacher is that you have to teach from your heart,” she said.
The honoree pointed out that students are going to be a part of a teacher’s life for 180 days a year.
