Ms. Linda Jackson
As a native of Columbia, SC and I grew up in Forest Acres. I graduated from AC Flora High School, attended Winthrop College and received my Bachelor of Arts degree in secondary education from the University of South Carolina. I also have an endorsement in "Gifted and Talented", middle level social studies and elementary education. This is my 25th year of teaching, all of which has been here at this site (Campus I and Crossroads). I serve as the Team 2 leader and am also the department head for Social Studies at CrossRoads. I have always taught social studies and thoroughly enjoy teaching 6th graders.
I have 3 adult children (Whit, Lauren, and Dana) and 3 grands (Jackson-15, Hailey-11, Kellen -5 1/2) that I love to be around. My hobbies include caring and working with plants (mostly houseplants), traveling, going to craft shows, getting together with friends and keeping physically fit.
I am looking forward to a wonderful school year where I can positively impact my students in some way!!
