Christi Jones has been teaching choir since 2000 at Young Junior High School in Arlington, Texas. Choirs under her direction have performed at TMEA, SWACDA, ACDA, the Middle School and Junior High National Convention, and for the Texas State Board of Education. Jones was named Teacher of the Year at Young Junior High School in 2011, and also received Runner-Up for the AISD "AWARE" award in 2011, 2014, and 2016.
Jones has published pieces with Carl Fischer Music, BriLee Music, and RBC Music, including several Texas UIL sight-reading pieces. Most of her compositions have been in response to a need of one of her own ensembles, or a need or interest from within her choir director community.
Jones is a member of TMEA, TCDA, ACDA, and TMAA, and is sought after as a Regional Clinician and UIL Adjudicator. She is also on staff as a Worship Ministry Assistant at First Baptist Church in Arlington, where she directs the Youth Choir and Contemporary Worship Team Vocalists.
Christi is happily married to her high school sweetheart, Scott, who teaches math at Young Junior High School. Christi and Scott reside in Arlington with their sons, Neal and Carson.
