Meet Mrs. Jones!
Hi Bluejays, I am Mrs. Jones. This is my 7th year at Willow Springs and my 17th year in education. I’m a veteran of the United States Army and I really LOVE working with our kids and families from WSES. My core belief is that relationships are the foundation of everything. I have been married for 27 years and I have 2 wonderful adult children and a beautiful granddaughter that I adore.

Meet Mrs. Peterson!
Hi, my name is Amber Peterson, and I currently serve students at Willow Springs and Nolanville Elementary School in Killeen ISD. In December 2004 I graduated with my Bachelor’s Degree and started my first teaching job as a PK teacher in January. I taught PK, K, 2nd, and 4th grade while in the classroom. In 2012, I graduated with my Master’s Degree in School Counseling. This is my seventh year as a school counselor and I love being able to work with students of all ages. As a school counselor, I enjoy helping students reach their full potential by building close relationships with the student, family, and staff members involved with this child. I have been married to my husband, Clint, for six years and we have a sweet four year old daughter named Grace.
