Cardinal Spotlight Week of September 28: Heritage Elementary School


Jennifer Jones has been with Southside ISD for 17 years, but that’s just the beginning. For her it’s a family affair, her parents are retired from Southside and her children are all graduates of Southside. When you ask for help with something or just see her in passing, she is always professional but treats you like a family too. Whenever there is a function on campus, she doesn’t hesitate to ask “What can I do?” or “What do you need me to bring?” Especially during the new adventure we call the school, she seems to take it in stride – easily adapting and leading her team so students at home and in school are getting what they need. We appreciate Ms. Jones and all that she does at Heritage.

Joseph Salazar is a dedicated first-grade student who puts forth a bright smile to his virtual class every day. He is extremely sweet towards all his classmates and especially towards his teacher. My favorite line from him is, “Thank you for teaching me today.” He has definitely earned this week’s spotlight!
