I was raised in a single-family home on the South Side of Chicago and has always strived to help others in my community. This compassion was taught as a little girl, from watching my mother grandmother feed and clothes the homeless and neighbors. I attended Southern Illinois University at Carbondale and obtained a BS in Education, and National Louis University and received a Masters Degree in Arts in Education Leadership, and obtained a Type 75 Certificate in Administration. I am happily married to a loving and supportive husband, Gerald Jones and gratefully appreciate my number one fan, my mother Sheryl Hall. I have worked for Chicago Public School Teacher for over 15 years, with experience as an Assistant Principal and Assistant Dean of Students. I spend a great deal of my time volunteering as a mentor for young girls, coaching cheer-leading, and giving back to my community. While I enjoy volunteering, my ultimate goal is to see PURE AND SURE serve as a nation-wide organization empowering young girls to be the best they can be!
