Hello! My name is Jamie Laney and I am the Instructional Coach at Wills Point Junior High. This is my second year as the Instructional Coach and my 12th year in education. Prior to the instructional role, I have taught Science, TX History, and US History. I was also a Junior High Girls Coach as well as the Junior High Social Studies Department Head.
I was born and raised in Wills Point and am a graduate of Wills Point High School. I attended college at Texas A&M University where I earned a B.S. in Animal Science. In December 2017 I completed a M.Ed. in School Counseling at Lamar University and am a certified school counselor.
My personal passions include raising and training barrel horses and spending time with my weenie dogs, family, and friends.
As the Instructional Coach at Wills Point Junior High it is my goal to provide instructional and academic support to all staff and students. I am able to provide this support in a variety of methods which include teacher and student discussions, planning, classroom observations, modeling, and co-teaching. I also organize and present professional development for staff and campus wide student activities to help ensure that Wills Point Junior High is an engaging environment for learning.
We were able to accomplish several amazing initiatives on campus last year. As we begin the 2018-2019 school year we have numerous exciting things planned and I am truly looking forward to a great year at Wills Point Junior High.
