Mrs. Megan Garner-Jones


Hello and Welcome to the 2022-2023 school year!

My name is Mrs. Garner-Jones and I am a First Grade teacher here at School 16. I have been teaching at School 16 for 24 years. I have taught Kindergarten for 2 years and First Grade for 22 years. I have taught second, third, fourth and fifth grade for both Summer School and Extended Learning Time!

I have 3 children. My daughter is almost 12 years old and will be starting 7th grade in Middle School in September. I also have a 6 year old son, who will be starting 2nd grade in the fall and my other son, who is almost 5 years old, will be starting Kindergarten!

First grade is a wonderful grade where my students have an opportunity to grow as active learners. I am very excited to help your child explore and learn this school year! 😄
