Humans of the U: Ronnell Andersen Jones

“There just aren’t very many more rewarding things you can do with your life than spending every day encouraging the process of learning and having a hand in helping those light bulbs go on. That’s especially true when the subject is constitutional law and those light bulbs are illuminating new insights into the nation’s history, the workings of democracy and the hard questions that divide both the country and the court.”


“I became a teacher to change the world. I feel that one should give back and, in my case, I knew I wanted to work with kids. Being a minority male, I felt that I could exemplify important things for young kids during a crucial time of their development. Something I did not have until junior high. My favorite thing about teaching is those “aha” moments when a child finally gets it, especially if it took perseverance and hard work.”
