It is hard to believe, but I have entered my 6th year with Johnston County Public Schools! Time has flown by! I have thoroughly enjoyed my journey so far with JCPS and look forward to many more amazing years!
Previously, I was in Wake County where I started working in 2006. During my time there, I taught 4th grade for eight years and 5th grade for one year. Before that, I had teaching experiences (NC and TN) in preschool, PreK, 1st, 2nd, Title I (4th and 5th), and working with incarcerated juveniles obtaining their GED.
I grew up in the beautiful foothills of Hendersonville (near Asheville, NC) where I enjoyed hiking, driving in the snow, and being captivated by the gorgeous fall colors year after year. Little did I know that this mountain girl would end up in Wake County for too many years. The hustle and bustle of city life was draining on my husband and me. Needless to say, we were thrilled when our children graduated from high school and we were able to move out to Johnston County in the summer of 2015! We have felt truly blessed. Although I admit, this is not quite my mountain home, I can once again see the stars at night, have room for an expansive garden, and view the bountiful wildlife. I am enjoying our time here and hope to call this area home for several more years.
We are BACK!!!!! Mrs. Jackson's Innovators are back VIRTUALLY! Welcome! I know we will have a great year if you persevere, listen, and get assignments.

As we anticipate a return to a normal school year in 2021-2022, with our students participating in face-to-face instruction five days a week, we are offering an exciting new opportunity for families. In the fall of 2021 we will open a new school, the JCPS Virtual Academy, for any student interested in grades K-12.
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.
The online application for the Johnston County Public Schools Preschool Program is now available. Parents who are interested in the JCPS Preschool Program are encouraged to apply early, as availability is on a first come, first served basis. The application window closes on June 30th.
Johnston County Public Schools has updated its plan to mark senior milestones, including prom and graduation while adhering to guidance from the Johnston County Public Health Department and the CDC in regards to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic.
