Teacher Assistant of the Year

2018 Teacher Assistant of the Year!

District 5 - Davidson County

Amy Jones
District 5 Education and Human Relations Chair, Dixie Black, is pleased to announce that Amy Jones has been selected as the NCATA-District 5 Teacher Assistant of the Year for 2018-19. In order to be selected teacher assistants must put together a portfolio, and go for an interview with their District EHR Committee. District winners are selected from among county winners who run for District Teacher Assistant of the Year.

Amy made a career change in 2014, leaving her job as a paralegal to become a teacher assistant.  Amy felt the calling on her life to work with children. She wanted to make a difference in their lives and impact on the world.  Now Amy has the opportunity to impact the lives of over 600 students each day as a educational technology specialist and bus driver. " Seeing each of the students that I have made a connection with to encourage, uplift, smile at, or just give a little hug, lets me know that I have made the right decision to be a teacher assistant", says Amy.
Amy has been married for six years and has one bonus son.  They enjoy volunteering at the NC Zoo twice a month.

She has been a member of both the Davidson County and North Carolina Association of Teacher Assistants since September 2015. She holds an Intermediate Level PDP Certificate through the NCATA’s Professional Development Plan. She is grateful for the experiences that have enabled her to help her students to know that there is someone who loves and cares for them. Amy’s hobbies are traveling, spending time with her nieces and nephews, going to the beach and petsitting anything from dogs to horses.
Congratulations to the 2017-18 School Level
