Mr. Eddie Jones
Hello, my name is Eddie Jones and I am very excited to be back at Fairmount Elementary School for the 2020-2021 school year. I began teaching and coaching in 1992 in my home state of Arkansas in the town of Springdale. I was at Springdale Central Junior High for three years teaching math and coaching football, basketball, and track. My wife and I moved to Calhoun in the summer of 1995 and I was hired at Model High School for the ISS job and middle school football and track coach. In 1997, I went to work in Gordon County at Sonoraville Middle School and have been here since that time. I worked at the middle school for 20 years and at Sonoraville High School for 2 years. This is my second year at Fairmount Elementary and I love it here! Mr. Dennis, Mrs. Champion and all of the faculty and staff are great to work with and for that I am grateful! I graduated high school in 1987 from Green Forest High School in Green Forest, Ar. and I graduated from Harding University with a bachelors degree in education in 1992. It was at Harding University that I met Karen Mayfield from Calhoun, Ga. Karen and I have three sons; Tommy is the oldest and is in education. On June 20th he married Mary Leigh Williams, so I now have a daughter! She is a wonderful lady and also an elementary teacher in Cherokee County. Justin graduated this past spring with an accounting degree from Harding University, and is currently working for Watkins Uiberall accounting firm in Memphis Tn. Landon is a sophmore at Harding University, and majoring in finance. All three of our boys graduated from Sonoraville High school. My wife Karen also graduated from Gordon County Schools and is a teaher at Red Bud Middle School. The students here at FES have been a joy to work with and I am thankful for the opportunity to teach in such a great community.
