Mrs. Carrie Jones
I am entering my twenty fourth year of teaching in the area of exceptional education. I have been in Trussville City Schools for twenty years and enjoy teaching in my community.
I have a passion for teaching "LIFE" and advocating for opportunties for my students as they learn, grow, and mature into young women and men who will move on from Hewitt Trussville High School to be active in thier community. The transition from high school to adult life can be challenging for anyone. I love having the opporotuntiy to begin preparing students for that transition as early as the ninth grade. We have several academies at Hewitt Trussville High School and the Life SKills Academy is my FAVORITE! We do LIFE everyday, learning, practicing, growing, and creating new paths in life!
I have the privlidge of coordinating the our Special Olympics Unified Sports and Recreation/ Leisure programming. This programs provides opporutntiies for students with and without disablities to unite for the purpose of friendship, fun, and competition. We provide programs that extend to schools several surrounding communities.
