Support Heather Leave a comment for Heather

Heather Jackson was nominated by an anonymous colleague.

Mrs. Jackson is a wonderful teacher! She teaches with love. She knows the needs of each student and gives them exactly what they need to succeed- whether it's an “I love you” or a morning hug. Mrs. Jackson not only loves each and every child in her classroom, but she also networks with parents and faculty to fulfill any needs or necessities a child might have. She anonymously leaves shoes, clothing, and food on the doorsteps of children in need. She does this for past students as well! Mrs. Jackson keeps up with her students and let’s them know she’s always there for them.

"Mrs. Jackson is a wonderful teacher to work with! She has such a fun personality and puts everyone at ease. Students and faculty alike can't help but smile when they see her," said her nominator.

Mrs. Jackson is a great teacher! My son still has to visit her any chance he can get. She taught him 2 years ago, and he still talks about how she made learning fun!
