Mrs. JoAnne Jones
My love for business classes began when I was in high school. One of my favorite classes was Accounting. I earned an associate degree in Accounting from Monroe Community College. Even now, over summers, I can be found taking graduate level accounting courses online through Liberty University. I earned a Bachelor in Economics from Potsdam College with a large concentration of courses in Computer Science. I hold an M.S. in Business Education from Nazareth College.
My first career, after earning my bachelor degree, was in banking where I started in the Mortgage Lending Department of a savings bank. I ended up switching to retail-branch banking to become a branch manager and a savings bank officer. In my banking career, I was called on to train colleagues on new hardware/software systems and really enjoyed teaching. Consequently, when my children were young, I attended school in the evenings to become a certified business teacher.
I use Office 365 to distribute resources to students and to collect work. I teach 5 different subjects. Consequently, I have asked students to have patience with me stating that I will make every attempt to have my grading done and grades in SchoolTool on Saturday mornings.
