Degrees and Certifications:
Ms. Amy Jackson
I have been a special education teacher for more than 20 years. I am from North Carolina and have taught in Taiwan, Raleigh, Asheville and for the last 10 years in Johnston County. I have two sons. My oldest son is a Social Studies teacher at ALMS. My youngest son attends college in Asheville. I received my graduate degree in Special Education at NC State, but received my undergraduate degree from UNC-Chapel Hill. I support the Wolfpack but remain a diehard Tarheel fan.
Most of my teaching experience has been in Life Skills classrooms. My passion is to teach these students to be as independent as they can. I believe that every person is capable of learning. I strive to create a classroom of love, support, kindness and high expectations.

While face masks are still required in all of our indoor facilities, students, staff, and guests of our campuses are no longer required to wear a face covering when outdoors. Students and staff may continue to wear masks when participating in recess or outdoor activities if they choose to do so.
