Karson Jones teaches kindergarten students at Cornerstone Prep Denver Campus. Ms. Jones, a product of Collierville High School and the University of Tennessee Knoxville, loves to see her students begin to read.
“My favorite part of the year is when reading starts to click with kindergartners,” says Karson. “You spend months laying the foundation for reading and then one day students suddenly understand. I remember sitting at my guided reading table and seeing my students' eyes light up as they realized they were able to read a whole book!”
Ms. Jones loves biking, climbing, listening to John Mayer and playing with her three-legged cat (affectionately called Peg Leg Pete). Next time you see her, tell her thanks for joining the CEG team and investing her life in the important work of urban education.
