Mrs. Jackson

3rd Grade

I am a third grade teacher.  I haven't taught anywhere else.  I went to SIUC.  I have a degree in elementary education.  My favorite color is green.  My favorite animal is a horse.  I love to teach writing.  My favorite thing about teaching is seeing the "ah ha" moment when a student finally "gets it"!  I dislike grading papers.  This is my fifth year teaching.  I have been teaching tumbling and cheer for the past 20 years right here in Wayne City.  I enjoy spending time with my family.  My favorite number is 7.  I like to read on rainy days.  I love to go to new places I have never been.  I would love to visit all 50 states.  I am 37 years old.  I have always loved working with children.  It just took me longer than most to get my degree. I always knew I would be a teacher some day!  It was one of my best decisions.  If I could do something else, I would want to be an author.  I am a huge Harry Potter fan.  The slogan that describes me best is "Winning isn't everything, but wanting to is!"  I am very competitive.  If I could be an animal, I would be a monkey.  It looks like fun swinging from the branches high in a tree!
