Darnell Jones

Master of Arts in Teaching (MAT)


Hailing from Shaker Heights, Ohio (just outside of Cleveland) Darnell has an extensive background in theater arts, holding a BFA in acting from Howard University. As a new member of the incoming MAT English cohort, Darnell would like to take an interdisciplinary and holistic approach to English education by blending his theatre arts background with his SEL training, and trauma-informed practice. Darnell has previously been employed as a full-time substitute paraprofessional for the Cleveland Metropolitan School District, where he has worked with K-12th-grade students with special needs such as ED, MH/Autism. Darnell is very humbled and excited to be a part of the Brown University MAT program where he will have the privilege of working and teaching alongside the many talented students of Providence.
