Mrs. Val Jones
    Visual Arts Teacher

    Guntersville Middle School and Guntersville High School 
         I am originally from Central Pennsylvania.  My husband and I moved to Guntersville in 1985.  We try to make frequent trips to the northeast to visit family as often as possible.  I feel it is important for students to know that I am a practicing artist as well as a teacher.  My favorite mediums are graphite, fiber arts, and collage.  I have a passion for reading and often my personal work reflects ideas and concepts from books, news, articles and music which I have been exposed.
