2020 Elementary Teacher of the Year

Brittany Jones
North State Aspire Academy

Brittany was also selected to compete for the 2020 California Elementary School Teacher of the Year!



Brittany Jones has developed integral relationships with some of the most challenging students in the district.  She has developed not only relationships with the students, but also with the families.  Ms. Jones truly believes that there is a way to help every single student grow both academically and social emotionally.  Every student succeeds in Ms. Jones classroom.

Brittany not only teaches the students in her classroom, her efforts are far reaching in our district, community, and at the state level.  Ms. Jones has presented not only in our district, but also at the state level.  Ms. Jones has presented at the California Kindergarten Association Annual PK-1 Conference, the California Mathematics Council North and South Summits.  Following these trainings, multiple Superintendents have contacted Ms. Jones to train in their districts which demonstrates the caliber of her work.

Ms. Jones is highly involved in her church as she is a junior and senior high school leader on the evenings and weekends.  She also leads a group of sixth grade girls and frequently attends their plays, games, and social events.  In addition, she recently went on a mission trip to Mexico where she educated students in an orphanage.

You will not find another teacher as determined as Ms. Jones to drive forward change.
