Dr. Anne Goeman Jones
Welcome to the 2022-2023 school year!
I will furnish all supplies except wooden pencils and a folder with pockets (for our warm-ups), and the students need to have these items with them every day.
The students will begin the school year creating a personal portfolio. Their projects for the school year will be placed in their portfolio, and the students may take home their portfolio at the end of the school year.
The projects are experiential utilizing a variety of materials. Scratchboard, graphite, ink, prismapencil, waterbased paint, collage, and clay are a few of these materials. Integration of math, science, history, and ELA is found in the hands-on projects. Art History Bingo is one of the many exciting projects where 25 artists and their work are reviewed; a bingo board with representational emojis created by the students is used to play a non-traditional bingo game during class.
The students will explore realistic, illusionistic (M C Escher), abstract, and non-objective subject matter using the elements and principles of the visual arts.
Night Gallery and JRVase are two of the shows where the students will experience galleries outside of Ed White MS. We also participate with the Windcrest Lions Club and their Peace Poster Contest.

ABOUT Dr. J:
I have been a teacher for a long time, teaching art is my passion, and I am as excited for the start of the new school year as I was in January, 1975! This is my 34th year in NEISD, having taught elementary general education, elementary art (specialist), special education, early childhood education, and middle school art. Prior to joining the NEISD, I private tutored and initiated the art program and taught art from Pre K through 8 and Art I, II, II, and IV for high school students at Keystone School, elementary art at St. Luke's Episcopal School, and pre-Kindergarten at Laurel Heights Weekday School. I am an alumni of Keystone School, so I have a heart full of memories; my twin daughters attended Keystone School and LHWS.
I have also taught Child and Adolescent Psychology and Critical Theory on the University level.
I have been a resident of the NEISD since 1959.
I was honored as the NEISD Middle School Teacher of the Year, 2005-2006.
I am a Texas Ex! I received a Bachelor of Fine Arts (BFA) in sculpture and drawing from the University of Texas, Austin, Texas; my Master of Arts (MA) is from Trinity University in school psychology, as well as additional Master of Art Education (MAEd) hours from Texas Tech University, Junction, Texas; and my Doctor of Philosophy (PhD) is from the University of the Incarnate Word in education, concentration- organizational leadership. Since the PhD program was interdisciplinary, I wrote about John Dewey and the art experience focusing on the history of art education in the United States and the importance of the traditional art process for human continuance for my dissertation. I have held seven Texas teacher certifications, three of them life certifications, and I hope to share my love for learning and for the visual arts with my students. My certifications are as follows:
All-Level Visual Arts Life
1-8 Visual Arts Life
1-8 Generalist Life
All-Level Gifted and Talented
and a non-Texas Certification in Art Therapy
My newest article The Butcher, the Baker, and the Candlestick Maker was published in the Education and Culture Journal, John Dewey Society. A second article entitled The Demise of the Butcher, the Baker, and the Candlestick Maker will soon be completed.
My twin daughters are busy with their families. Gwen and her husband are Medical Illustrators in NYC and Rochester, NY. They are busy with their children. Mady and her family have lived in Europe, and have enjoyed exploring the many different art centers there. They are involved with many activities including discovery of our Nation's National Parks. They have traveled to 49 of the 50 states!
My daughters and one of my sons-in-law graduated from NEISD schools. I support the NEISD PTA, as I did at my children's schools. I have a Texas PTA Life Membership.
When I am away from the classroom, I spend time with my family, drawing, experimental painting, working with clay, wood, and stone, reading!, researching history, playing the piano, and taking train-rides across the United States with my husband. I prefer "staying close to the ground" when I travel, but we have flown in order to visit our family in Europe. (eeek) Our gardens and animals, especially our Guinea Pig, RosieGirl, also keep us busy at home.
I serve the community as a member of Madison Hills Baptist Church and Keystone School Alumni Association.
