Bio

My full name is Robert Stewart Jones "BO." I go by Bo, but students can refer to me as Mr. Jones or Coach Jones. I coach both Baseball and Football, but I only coach baseball at the High school. I coach football at the Middle School. I have a beautiful wife and young Daughter. I enjoy studying both History and Science in my free time, but I also enjoy hunting, fishing, sports, spending time with my family, and of course planning unique and fun lessons for my class! I strive each day to be the best motivator, instructor, conductor, facilitator, and role model for my students. I take the role I have been blessed to have, as a teacher, very seriously. I love creativity in any form, even humor. My class will hopefully feel very fun and energetic, while the students learn way more material and life lessons than just the standards. I strive to make impacts in my students' lives, while also making a huge impact on their future.
