About Elizabeth Jones

I recently finished my 42nd year of teaching. When folks ask me why don't I retire, I simply say it is because I still enjoy teaching and learning. This is my 3rd year as principal of one of six new magnet schools in our district with a focus on STEM and STEAM (includes arts). My staff teaches using project-based learning from Buck Institute for Education and integrative STEM curriculum using Engineering by Design and Engineering is Elementary.I have had some truly awesome experiences working in various leadership and professional development capacities for Michigan State University and the Lansing Public School District. Six years ago, I returned to the classroom and taught engineering and mathematics at Lansing STEM Academy. We used a nationally recognized curriculum from Project Lead the Way, Gateway to Technology. I am certified to teach secondary mathematics, which is another area that I am passionate about. As a 2011 Siemens STEM Institute Fellow, I've gained new insights towards integrating online resources and technology into student projects and learning experiences.
