My name is Dru Jones and I grew up in Mobile attending St. Ignatius and graduating from Julius T. Wright School. I attended the University of Alabama and met and married my husband of 32 years, AJ Jones. We lived in Birmingham, Al where we raised our two children, Allen (34) and Sally (31). Allen is married, lives in Birmingham and he and his wife Lindsay have blessed me with the cutest grandson ever, Joe. Sally lives in Gadsden, Alabama, works as a personal assistant and blessed me with a wonderful grand dog, Tank. Last summer I decided to return to Mobile to be close to my parents and to the Gulf waters.
I have two passions, Alabama Football (RTR) and my sweet puppy, Rhett Butler! Most afternoons you will find me walking the sidewalks of Spring Hill with Rhett leading the way!
I worked in education for 29 years, teaching preschool, first grade, and third grade. For 20 years, I was blessed to work as the Assistant Principal of Brookwood Forest Elementary School in Mountain Brook. I was extremely lucky to have worked in a wonderful school, where the learning is student centered and professional development was a hallmark. Those years taught me so much and I am so excited to,share that with the St. Paul’s Early Education Center.
I look forward to spending time getting to know your children and learning from them.
