Biography




Biography:

I have been teaching at Cypress College since 2000. I primarily teach English 58 and English 137, and I offer campus and online sections for both of these courses. In addition to teaching, I enjoy spending time with my husband and two children. My daughter is 7 and my son is 4, so they keep us very busy. I look forward to working with you. If can be of any assistance, please let me know. I am easily available through campus email at sjones@cypresscollege.edu.

Teaching Philosophy:

"Tell me and I’ll forget; show me and I may remember; involve me and I’ll understand."

-Chinese proverb

I beleive that it is impossible for students to learn unless they are actively involved in the process. That’s why in my classroom you will be involved in many different ways. We will extensively use the computer lab, group activities and other active learning strategies. I try to keep the class atmosphere light, fun and interesting, but I do take student learning very seriously. The assignments in my class are building blocks that will prepare you for your future academic and professional endeavors.
