Sydney Jones grew up in Minneapolis, MN and graduated from College of Saint Benedict/Saint John’s University (in MN) with a major in English and a minor in secondary education as well as my secondary English teaching license. She absolutely loves teaching and can’t imagine doing any other job. She explains this to people by saying: “teaching gives me energy at the same time as it takes my energy away, because, let’s be honest, it is an exhausting job.” Sydney is currently pursuing a Masters in Education through St. Catherine University (MN).

Reaction Statement

I fully appreciate all the financial help I am able to receive as it is difficult to add on the expense of a masters program when I’m on a young teacher’s income. Thank you so much for helping me become a better teacher for our students!
