Principal's Message

 

 

Dear U.S. Jones Families,

 

Welcome to the 2018-2019 school year. My name is Tori Infinger and I am so honored and excited to serve as your new principal at such an amazing and historic school. I have been serving in education for the past nine years as an elementary and middle school teacher, Academic Interventionist, Educational Specialist, and administrator. I am originally from Walton County, Florida and began my teaching career there, but served in the Montgomery Public School District the past seven years. I have also served at the Alabama State Department of Education in the Section of Accountability. I attended the University of West Florida in Pensacola where I received my Bachelor’s Degree of Arts in Elementary Education/English Speakers of Other Languages and Reading. After teaching in Walton County, Florida for two years, I moved to Montgomery, Alabama to pursue my graduate degree at Auburn University Montgomery where I received my Master’s and Educational Specialist Degrees in Instructional Leadership. I bring with me a wealth of experience and am honored to be serving in the great community of Demopolis! Go Tigers!

 

Our vision at U.S. Jones for the upcoming school year is “Love, Learn, Lead.” Our goal at U.S. Jones is to help shape and mold our students into becoming global contributing citizens who are ready to embrace opportunities for continuous growth and leadership by ensuring that they feel loved, learn academically and social-emotionally, and develop leadership skills so that they are leaders in life.

 

We are so excited to announce that we have officially began the process of becoming a Leader in Me School which focuses on developing students as leaders by teaching students about the 7 Habits of Happy Kids and how they can use the 7 Habits in their life. We will focus on learning about a habit each month so please check back on our website, Twitter, and Facebook page to find out what habit we are learning each month.

 

We invite you to attend our Open House on Friday, August 10, 2018 from 4:30 p.m. until 6:00 p.m. We hope that you will join us for an evening of welcoming and excitement. I look forward to getting to know you and your child and making U.S. Jones the best school for your child.

 

Yours in Leadership,

 

Tori Infinger
