Chris Jones has been an educator in Massachusetts for 18 years.  He is just wrapping up his 11th year as a building administrator; the last 2.5 of which he has been the Principal of Seekonk High School in Seekonk, MA. Chris will be leading Whitman-Hanson High School in SY 2018-2019. Chris is passionate about continuous improvement and the idea that success is not a destination, but a process.  Chris’s beliefs around the importance of a positive work environment, continuous growth, and a healthy family work balance can be seen in the presentations/workshops he has given for the MSAA and MassCue; his participation in the Better Leaders Better Schools Mastermind group; and his scheduling of a “family night” each week.

Chris is described by his current Superintendent as being “...wholly invested in the success of the school…a creative problem-solver who is able to deliberate yet be decisive, be creative yet accountable…calm and clear-headed even under the most trying of times…has built a strong collaborative and collegial school culture…he is a positive influence on teachers, teaching, and learning.”  Chris blogs on a regular basis and has begun vlogging as a way to reflect on his progress, share his story, and get others to think about different perspectives. His overarching goal is to positively model continuous improvement in all facets of life by being purposeful, acting with integrity, and building character.

“Define who you are … not what you do.”

-Chris Jones
