Second Grade

JonesHi, my name is Mr. Darryl Jones.  I hold a Bachelors Degree in Psychology from Union Institute and University and a Masters Degree in Catholic Inclusive Education from Loyola Marymount University. I am the product of Catholic School Education, and attended St. Lawrence Brindisi Elementary School in Los Angeles and Mount Carmel High School also in Los Angeles. To this day, I still consider the virtues taught to me during his early educational years to be a valuable blessing. I use these virtues to help direct my spiritual life today.

I have been a Catholic School teacher for 32 years. I have taught grades 2nd – 6th and even though I have had my challenges I enjoy teaching immensely. I’ve taught at 3 other Catholic Schools in Los Angeles other than Our Lady of Victory.  Also, I have taught in the Compton Unified School District. One of the most rewarding things about teaching for me, is seeing a students face light up when I have taught them a concept that they finally understand.

I loves music and the performing arts. I have had the pleasure of performing with a number of Los Angeles Gospel Choirs. I am passionate about traveling and someday plan to visit Europe, The Holy Lands, and Africa. Incidentally, I am interested in collecting artifacts, books and artwork related to the African American experience and culture.
