Tracey Wooten, Lead Interventionist

Hi! My name is Tracey Wooten. The 2020-2021 school year marks my 32nd year in education. My career began in 1988, teaching 2nd grade at Gilbert Elementary School. When I knew there would be a new school built in the Red Bank Area in 1992, I became excited at the thought of being part of opening a new school. My 5th year teaching, I moved to the not-yet-finished Saxe Gotha Elementary School. Yes, as I jokingly say, I've been at SGE longer than the light fixtures. I started teaching 4th grade at SGE in 1992 and taught on the same hall for 14 years. As the school began to explore ways to help our students who were striving readers and mathematicians, I decided it was time for me to move toward my passion of reaching out to students who struggled with behavior and/or academics. So, my 15th year at SGE, I accepted the role as Lead Interventionist and have continued to learn and grow alongside some of the most caring, compassionate, and intelligent teacher leaders I've ever met. #SGEStrong

Karen Jones

Hi, my name is Karen Jones. I grew up in upstate New York and enjoyed life as part of a big family, spending as much time as possible on the lakes and mountains surrounding our town. I moved to Mississippi and graduated from Mississippi University for Women where I played basketball and earned degrees in Elementary and Special Education. It was during that time that I met my husband, Mike. We have been married for 40 years and have two sons and a beautiful granddaughter. We enjoy gardening, golfing, riding our motorcycle, and spending time with our granddaughter. I have also been teaching for over 40 years in grades K - 6. Currently, I work as an interventionist as part of a great RTI team. In addition to working with a devoted staff at SGES, it is the opportunity to build relationships with my students and help them grow as learners that are my joys of teaching.
