Support Judith Leave a comment for Judith

Judith Jackson was nominated by her principal, Doris Lee.

Ms. Jackson travels close to two hours every day to inspire students. She is never late, and she is always smiling. Ms. Jackson can be heard giving inspiring speeches to students who are frustrated and struggling. Every moment is spent with students, even during her lunch period. She wants to ensure every child succeeds. She quietly works behind the scenes supporting events and efforts, comforting upset students or colleagues, and making sure everyone on her team has what they need.

"Her consistent efforts may go unrecognized, as she does so many little things that have a great impact and never seeks credit," Lee said. "She is a professional and a role model. She serves as a mentor to our new teachers supporting them in building relationships with students. She is also a support for our families as well. Ms. Jackson is the glue of Village Academy. She is definitely a LifeChanger!"
