Ms. Jackie Jackson

This is my second year teaching at Leaphart Elementary School STEAM Magnet and my 12th year in the field of education. I have two daughters who are products of Lexington/Richland District 5 and I'm proud to say...they both are in college now. I have #PrideIn5!!!!

Prior to arriving at Leaphart, I taught 3rd grade in Newberry County for 10 years.

I'm a firm believer of being an ongoing learner in and outside of the classroom because not only am I a teacher but a coach and a mentor too. I have two bachelor degrees, one is in Marketing and the other is in Elementary Education from the University of Maryland University College. With teaching being my passion I decided to futher my studies and I obtained a master's degree in Educational Leadership from Western Governor's University. I not only want to make a difference in a child's life but in my community as well.

You will often hear me say, you are never too old to teach and you're never too young to learn. My goal is to keep learning and keep teaching because teaching is not just a gift, it's my calling.
