Mrs. Tisha Jones

Position: Middle School Teacher: Grades 6th – 8th

Biography: This is my first year teaching Movement for Birchtree Charter School, but it is my third year as a staff member.  I have also worked at Birchtree as a resource teacher and as the Parent Partnership Coordinator.  I graduated in 2000 from Washburn University in Topeka, Kansas with a Bachelor of Education and Minor in Religious Studies.  I taught two summers of English in China before entering the Master of Theological Studies program at Vanderbilt University in 2002.   

My husband and I returned to Kansas in 2004 after our first child was born, and there I was blessed to raise both of my girls as a full-time “domestic engineer.”  We moved to Alaska five years ago and have loved our time here.  It is a gift to see the beauty of the land each day and the kindness of the people.  We have been truly blessed by this community, and I can’t imagine ever moving.  I am honored to be working with the students and staff at Birchtree Charter School.
