Peyton Lee Jones ’02

Upper School History


Peyton returns to his alma mater and joins the long legacy of alumni instructors at Tampa Prep. Many of you are familiar with Peyton as a substitute teacher and now he brings his talents to Cass street every day. Peyton is a soft spoken, published super intellect who has had a long career in higher education, teaching a broad spectrum of history courses, always with an eye on secondary schools. Much of his professional research has focused on the Civil Rights Movement and American History, thus his talents and credentials are a welcome fit for our History department. Peyton received his Bachelor of Arts in History from the University of Florida, a Master of Liberal Arts  from the University of South Florida and his Doctorate in Modern American History from Tulane University.
