Melody Jones grew up in Bossier City and resides there now with her four-legged children, and loves being outdoors, gardening, cooking, and making pottery. She graduated from the University of Houston with a B.S. in Elementary Education, specializing in early childhood. She also earned her Master’s degree in music education from U of H. After teaching in Texas and Pennsylvania, Ms. Jones came to Caddo to teach kindergarten at Forest Hill, became their reading interventionist, then moved to the district level to be the Lead Content Coach in ELA. Ms. Jones wanted to reconnect with students and be a part of Shreve Island, so jumped at the opportunity when it arose. She is thrilled to be part of such a positive community of leaders and learners.
