Mr. Vernon Jones
Hello! My name is Vernon Jones and I continue to be excited about the great opportunity of serving as Oak View’s championing assistant principal. Before joining the Oak View Staff, from 2006 through 2010, I was the assistant principal at Cedar Grove Elementary School in Germantown, Maryland. I moved to Maryland in 1998 after a twelve year career in Washington, DC as mathematics and science teacher and science department chairperson.
I was born and grew up in Washington, D.C. I earned a bachelor of science in biology and a master of arts in counseling from the University of the District of Columbia and attended Catholic University of America for my teacher preparation and certification. In 2000, I completed coursework and requirements for Administrator I certification at Towson University. As a life-long learner I believe that learning opportunities are all around us, all of the time, everywhere we go. To that end, currently I am enrolled as doctoral student at Chicago School of Professional Psychology. My anticipated date of graduation is in 2018!
My wife and I live in Silver Spring, and I enjoy spending time with family, friends and our Pekingese, Lil Lynne. I am the proud father of two sons, Jaren and Jourdan. Jaren is a graduate of Montgomery College in Rockville and employed with the Enterprise Corporation and Jourdan is a ninth grader at Northwood High School. When I am not working, I am with family and friends, enjoying good food, bowling and working out.
