About Mr. Jones

McKay Jones earned his bachelor’s degree in sociology from Brigham Young University. He has experience working in sales and business. He has always had a passion for teaching and is dedicated to seeing students succeed.

Jones feels that his best quality as an educator is his ability to connect with students. “I take the relationship with each student seriously and know it is a serious obligation to earn and maintain each student’s trust,” he said.

“I am looking forward to getting to know the students,” said Jones. “I stand by my door every day as they walk in because I really want to know each student and find ways to connect with them so that they’ll be more engaged in a topic I think is vitally important.”

Favorite Performance Character Trait: Social Intelligence

“I try and look at every interaction with others as an opportunity to help, and being able to understand the needs of others is key to that,” said Jones. “So to see that Athlos teaches their students to show respect and confidence each time they interact with peers and teachers is remarkable.”
