  • Mrs. Jones
  • Hello! My name is Heather Jones.  I am part of a fabulous first grade team here at Cedar Ridge Elementary.  I am a "townie" as they say, born and raised here in Bloomington/Normal.  I am proud to say I am a Unit 5 alum.  I have attended Brigham Elementary, Parkside Junior High, and Normal Community High School.  After high school I attended Eastern Illinois University to study nursing.  I became a camp counselor one summer and decided to change my major to education.  I transferred to Illinois State University and recieved my Bachelor of Science Degree in Early Childhood Education.
    I did not start teaching right away and instead started my family.  I have 3 children ages 14, 12, and 8.  During my stay at home years I ran a very successful home daycare business for 14 years.  My youngest went to school and I started to substitute teach in Unit 5.  I am very excited to say that this is my first year teaching and I love every minute of it.
