Mr. Matt Jones
The journey began for me in Katy, Texas. From childhood to leaving the home, I chose to invest my time most heavily into my family, friends, books, video games, football and orchestra. I decided at the last minute my senior year at Katy High School to attend Texas A&M University where I met my wife, Joy (who graduated from Guyer) the first day of freshman fish camp. We got married December 21st, 2013 and promptly moved to Canyon, Texas for my wife's job. From here, I finished my final student teaching hours for my English/History degree in the Education Department at A&M and graduated in May of 2014.
Many adventures and stories have happened to my wife and I since then, where life has taken us around the world for work, friends and family. We recently moved from Portalnd, Oregon back to Texas in the Denton area, where we have since been able to get a home and begin getting plugged into the community.
In addition to teaching English in the 8th Grade, I am also one of the Coaches for football, basketball, track and cross country. It is an absolute privilege to be working at McMath Middle School and on the 8-2 Team! Thanks and Gig 'em!
