Timothy A. Jones
Head of Upper School
Year Appointed: 2018
- B.S., Texas Christian University, 2000
- M.Ed., Vanderbilt University, 2017
Originally from Odessa, I moved to Fort Worth after high school to attend TCU. In the Summer of 2000, I became the Athletic Trainer at Trinity Valley School. During my career at TVS, I also spent time as a classroom teacher, assistant director of the Experiential Education Program, and as the school’s Director of Athletics for almost a decade.
This variety of opportunities cultivated a passion for independent school education that ultimately led me to pursue a master’s degree in Independent School Leadership from Vanderbilt University.
Returning to West Texas and joining the Trinity School community as the Head of Upper School has been a rich and rewarding experience. It is a delight to observe the ambitious teaching and learning that occurs in the classrooms, studios, and athletic facilities at Trinity School -- and the opportunities for this are plentiful.
In my time away from school, I enjoy watching college sports, reading, cooking and traveling with my wife, Dawn, and our two German shorthaired pointers, Gus and Sage. Additionally, I always look forward to tech-free weekends and spending time in the great outdoors; hunting, fishing, biking, hiking, cutting firewood, or sitting around a campfire listening to classic country and Texas red-dirt outlaws.
