Mr. Jarrod Jones

I have been teaching English Language Arts in middle school since 2007. During my first nine years, I taught seventh grade for six years and sixth grade for three years at Brittany Woods Middle School in the School District of University City. Being there was a dream come true for me, considering I was a student at Brittany Woods many years ago and am a 1988 graduate of University City High School. I have been teaching ELA at Hixson Middle School since the 2016-2017 school year. Being in Webster Groves School District has also been an awesome experience, and I feel like I am in my second home. My three older children graduated from Webster Groves High School in 2013, 2014, and 2016. My youngest child is a freshman at WGHS now. As a parent, I have loved the Webster Groves community, and as an educator, I have been able to translate that same affection while teaching the awesome students here at Hixson.

I absolutely love teaching. In addition, I am an avid basketball player (even still at my age), I love working out, I have managed a music group in my past, and my greatest passion is writing; I have written for a local newspaper, I have written songs, plays, was an editor of a newsletter, and I am currently revising the second draft of my first novel.

Please take time to take a look at my wonderful and beautiful family (my wife Shiloh Marie, my sons Kielan Jared and Jaelan Kyél Xzavier, and my daughters Lael AbriAnna and Camilah Selae), as I have included way too many pictures in My Family Photo Album!
