Degrees and Certifications:
My name is Samantha (Sam) Jones and I am the Chemistry and Anatomy & Physiology teacher at Metro A&C. This is my first year teaching at Metro and I am so excited to be with the smartest students in the state!!
I went to Mizzou - Go Tigers - for my undergrad where I received a Bachelor's degree in Biology and a Minor in Psychology. After I graduated, I got a job working for Wash U in the Genome Institute. I did re-search and lab work for three years before I decided to go back to school and get my teaching degree. I got my Master's in Secondary Education from UMSL and started working for SLPS.
I've been a south county St. Louis girl my whole life and love our city! I love the water and swimming so I try to spend as much time down at the lake as possible. I love concerts and musicals. Really, I love music in general so I am always open to any song recommendations if you have them!
I look forward to getting to explore the sciences with you this year and to get to know the Metro community better!
