Coach Jones loves kids of all ages and finds it fulfilling to help them discover their individual talents and thinking. She is especially enthusiastic about working with girls to help them understand their unique voice in the world and how to use it for good. She hails from Long Beach where she grew up playing basketball (winning a CIF Div. 1 Championship), competing in shot put, rowing crew (winning several regattas), kayaking, surfing, sailing, and playing in every music group possible as a French horn player. She went to UCLA where she got her teaching credential and B.A. in music while staying active with marching band, water sports, beach volleyball, and hiking. She taught a robust high school music program at Venice High School including a vigorous and award-winning marching band program. Prior to her start at BHS as a sub in 2017, she got an MBA and MFA at CSULB, traveled solo for a year around the U.S., Canada, and Australia, and was a House Mom for student housing for local universities. She has her Level 1 Track & Field Coaching Certification through USATF, Volleyball Head Coach Certification through AOCVB, Grassroots Coaching Certification for soccer through USAS, and has taken lacrosse coaching courses through USAL, amongst other professional development. She loves being active, has recently taken up golf, run several half marathons, and completed the LA Marathon. She is grateful to be at Berkeley Hall where she teaches outside all day every day on the beautiful campus while supporting a mission statement she believes in, and working with colleagues who are great thinkers.
