Hello! My name is Maria Jones and I am honored to be the ELL teacher at Horizon Elementary School. As a native Italian, I feel as English Language Learning reflects who I am as a lifelong learner as well as an educator. My goal is to inspire students to reach for their dreams and to proudly represent their cultures inside and outside the classroom. During my free time, I love cooking...and yes, eating too! I also enjoy biking, running, and swimming. My last passion is Bikram Yoga. I hardly ever watch TV...I rather spend time reading or with family and friends.
