Mrs. Aja Jackson

Welcome to the 2020-2021 school year! My name is Mrs. Aja Jackson and I am thrilled about being your child’s 1st grade teacher!  I completed my Bachelors of Science degree in Early Childhood Education at Newberry College and this is my 8th year teaching first grade.  I have found an abundance of joy in my teaching journey thus far, and I am excited to continue this journey another year as an SOES media owl!

I currently reside in Irmo, SC with my husband and our eleven-year-old daughter and newborn baby boy. With the new addition to the family, this means I will be out on maternity leave when school begins. I will return in October. While I am not teaching, I enjoy spending my time with my family.  I also enjoy reading, traveling, wedding planning/directing, shopping, and spending time in the sunshine!


My classroom has an open door policy, which means you are always welcome to be a part of our learning expeiences.  With the pandemic, however, guidelines have changed as far as visiting.  I will make sure that as much as possible, you are part of our learning.  When contacting me, you may email me at or contact me via phone at 803-476-8500. 

I look forward to a FANTASTIC school year! Together we can make first grade fun, exciting, and engaging for your child!
