WYNNE, AR (KAIT)- After putting her two daughters through school to become educators, Callie Caradine-Jones decided to go back to school to get her teaching certification.

Ms. Jones teaches a multi-age classroom at Wynne Primary School and believes every child has what it takes to be successful.

Jones said she loves being around her students.

"I love doing what I do, even when I was a little girl that was my main goal in life, I was going to become a teacher," she said.

Jones taught for 8 years in Earle and 5 years at Wynne Primary School and said she has learned so much along the way.

"I've grown so much, the way technology is today and the children are an all the new resources that we have out there, I have grown," Jones said.

She said she tries to instill confidence and self-worth in her students. But always wonders if she can do more.

"Am I doing enough, I know I give 110 percent but I feel like am I truly doing all I can to help these children. I want every child to be successful in life," she said.

Jones said she tries to meet every student at their level and help them to grow.

"What didn't I do today that I can do better tomorrow," she said. "I can pull out one more little manipulative. I can find another little book, I can find something else."

Jones said she wants her students to know that she is fair and honest and that she would do anything for them.

"I can look back on my first grade teacher or my second grade teacher, my kindergarten teacher and know that she was the woman that no matter what I did, she was there for me."

Most days Jones stays after school to mentor her students. She also comes to school on the weekends to prepare lessons for the following week.
