Melinda Jones
Restoration Center Secretary
North Kitsap School District
Kingston High School

Mindy's interest in education began as a student teacher while enrolled at Oregon State University. After graduation, she became a military wife and was on the move for the next 15 years. Mindy volunteered in her kids' classrooms from kindergarten all through elementary school. In San Diego, she also participated in the Playground Partners program organized by the local YMCA.

 In 2015 Mindy started at Kingston High as a library secretary, then became a counseling secretary.

In 2019, she was a key member in setting up the Restoration Center (RC). The RC team designed the forms, implemented processes, and decided what data to collect and how. Mindy played an integral part in bringing the vision of the Restoration Center to fruition. With the tumultuous past couple of years, Kingston High has been unable to collect a solid year of data. From September 1, 2021, through January 31, 2022, however, the Restoration Center has had a total of 1,503 visits.

Mindy is the face of the RC, welcoming every student that comes in and connecting them with the services they need, be that academic help, social emotional support, or behavioral services.

Thank you Mindy, for all you have done and continue to for Kingston High School students. Your dedication to ensuring that every student is known, and has the individualized care and resources they need, is greatly appreciated.
