Mrs. Jackson graduated from Calumet College of St. Joseph with an Associate’s degree in Administration Support and her Bachelor’s degree in Management Information Systems. She earned her Masters degree in Information Systems at the University of Phoenix.
Mrs. Jackson administrates the Project Lead the Way program and is teaching Intro to Computer Science. She also serves/has served as an Adjunct Faculty member at Vincennes University, teaching dual credit technology classes such as Computer Concepts and Business driven communications and networking.
In her own words, “I was a parent first in the Gary school system and enjoyed volunteering which motivated me to become more involved by becoming a substitute teacher and then advancing my education and working at 21st for nearly 10 years in different roles. My nieces, and nephews are also motivators because they have all excelled both academically and professionally. However, their motivation extended to their classmates and friends by pushing them to also excel, which I feel every student should do. Currently, my robotic students are my biggest motivators, these students work extremely hard to be ready for competition, by collaborating well with other teams, learning and using computer programming skills, electrical wiring, and other building skills while sometimes working long hours. Kudos to their parents who entrust me and my staff with these awesome young people throughout the school year and especially during competition.”
In her free time, Ms. Jackson enjoys seeing the beauty of the countryside by traveling throughout the country with my family, whenever given the opportunity. I enjoy visiting and watching both my sons maturing on their college campuses through their student-athlete activities, theater and most importantly learning a lot through their classroom academics.
