Biographical Information

After one career as a public school teacher in north Georgia, Glenn Jones embarked on a new career as an international educator in 2001. Keeping intact his beliefs about teaching students to learn how to learn, he and his wife Mechele began teaching in a small international school in Tegucigalpa, Honduras. After one year, Jones was offered, and accepted, the position as director of the school. His six years as head of the school witnessed a doubling of the size of the school and the purchase and construction of a new campus. When the opportunity came for a new challenge in Africa in 2008, Jones and his wife moved to the country of Burkina Faso, where he served as the director of the International School of Ouagadougou for three years. Two years were spent working full-time with Nuestros Pequeños Hermanos, an organization that helps orphaned, abandoned, and abused children homes and education. Glenn served as director of teacher training, helping teachers find the physical and professional resources needed to help the children be successful. He still works with NPH, but on a part time voluntary basis. From 2013 till 2017, Glenn was the director of the Euroamerican School in Monterrey, Mexico. He retired in June of 2017 to spend more time with the six grandchildren.
