Mr. Christopher Jones

Me:  This is my fourth year as an ESL teacher at Central School. Altogether this is my eighth year in education. I am truly enjoying my time at Central and look forward to a great year this year.  Outside of school I enjoy spending time with my family including our dogs.  I also enjoy our church.  Camping has been one of my favorite activities, but as I get older it is harder and harder to sleep on the ground or on an air mattress so we don't do that much anymore.  I would love to buy a canoe and some good fishing equipment and start fishing.  I enjoy the outdoors and love to spend time looking at the stars, seeing the mountains, hiking the woods, and much more.

My family:  I celebrate 25 years with my wife this year!  We have 4 beautiful daughters who are about to be all grown up.  Our oldest, Amanda, is 24 and is starting her last year at Missouri Southern State University. Rebekah is 21. She graduated from Crowder College in May and will be pursuing a Bachelor's at Missouri State this fall.  Cristin is 19 and beginning her Sophomore year at Missouri State University this year.  Emilee, our youngest, is 17 and attends Neosho High School. She is planning to finish high school in December and graduate from Crowder College in May.  Fang is our 1 year old Sharpei.
