Carrie Beth Jones
Elementary Art Teacher
Hi, my name Is Carrie Beth Jones. I am the Art teacher here at Shady Grove Elementary. My family and I have taught for 14 years, and lived in Burnet and been a part of this community for 21 years!!! Go Bulldogs!!! I am married to Coach Kurt Jones. We have been married for 21 years!!! He is the athletic director for the district. Together we have 2 wonderful kids. Our daughter Mady will be a Junior this year, and our son Grant will be a freshman. Both are very active in school sports and activities!! We attend Vanderveer St. Church of Christ.
I absolutely love having the opportunity to teach art to our youngest students in the district!!! Its an exciting time of exploring new things that some have never done before. This will be my 4th year to teach Art!!! We like to explore with various kinds of art media and get our hands dirty in art class!! In my opinion that's the best kind of art class! I enjoy getting to share my love of art with kids. This year might look a little different, and at times be challenging, but we will still have lots of fun!!!
You can find our students art decorating our campus hallway outside the art room throughout the year. The kids love seeing all of their work, and I love how it brightens our school! My hope is to continue creating our art portfolio's. Since we had to leave school early this past year I will be coordinating with teachers to get students portfolios from last year back to them. These portfolios are filled with several pieces of art that we will work on during the school year. Stay tuned for amazing art to be created from our Shady Grove Bullpups this coming school year!!!! They continue to amaze me with their talents and what they can accomplish!!
