Greg May Honda is proud to announce Josh Jones as the winner of the My Favorite Teacher Contest!
Josh Jones has been recognized for his impact on the Waco community through being an outstanding teacher at Valley Mills elementary school. Mr. Jones has made a positive impact on so many of his students, causing us to receive countless nominations. Mr. Jones has been awarded a brand new 2021 Honda Accord EXL, and the recognition of being the “favorite teacher” within the central Texas area. The award serves as a token of gratitude for all the hard work that Mr. Jones has put into shaping student’s lives and being an exceptional educator.
Mr. Jones is not only known for his unique style of learning in the classroom that engages even the most reluctant learners, but also for the impact that he has made on his student’s classroom experience. One former student said,
"During this pandemic, he was the guy reading stories online and making YouTube videos. He does not do this for praise, he does this for joy in his heart, no matter how hard life gets, you can always count on Mr. Jones."
Another student wrote, "He also spends his time teaching students guitar and golf. Mr. Jones is the reason Valley Mills is the greatest school on earth."
Mr. Jones has spoken about this recognition saying, "I always try to take the time to get to know the kids as people, because sometimes when you're teaching so much curriculum and you're in a 90-minute block, and you're trying to do all these things, you don't take the time to listen to them."
We would like to congratulate Mr. Jones and all of the teachers who are changing lives every day. Greg May Honda will always support the work that you do, and work hard so we can continue to put the unity in community.
