•  School year 2019-2020


       I am Mrs. Kelly Jones.  I received a Masters Degree in Reading Education from Canisius College in 2003.  I hold permanent certifications as a Classroom Teacher for Kindergarten- Grade 6, and as a Reading Specialist for Kindergarten- Grade12. 

       In 2004, I joined the Lake Shore family as a Reading Specialist at A. J. Schmidt Elementary School.  Although I loved my students and colleagues at Anthony J. Schmidt, in 2011 I seized the exciting opportunity to teach at Lake Shore Middle School.  I spent the following three years as a classroom teacher teaching developmental reading to sixth graders. 

        In 2013, I began focusing on English support and reading intervention throughout the entire Middle School building.  This year, I am continuing in that capacity, serving all three grade levels and students on all instructional teams.  I regularly attend English classes throughout the building to provide support to students right where they need it.  

       During study hall periods, select students are invited to work with me in Room 203 for a session we call "Literacy Lab." Literacy Lab is an opportunity for students to spend their study hall period in a small group setting with a reading specialist who can provide remedial reading and writing instruction as needed, as well as provide support with classwork from other literacy-driven courses.  This course is taught in conjunction with my fellow reading teacher, Mrs. Kimberly Pupo.         

       I look forward to getting to know my students and help them reach their fullest potential.  If you would like to contact me, please call 716-926-2704 or email kelly.jones@lscsd.org.  I am happy to help in any way I can.
