Mrs. Jackie Jackson- Gifted and Talented Specialist
Welcome! My name is Jackie Jackson and I am the Gifted and Talented Specialist at Oak Point Elementary and Hackberry Elementary. I enjoy pushing my GT students past what they thought they could do before! We don't use the word 'hard' in my classroom. We call it challenging and we push through! In GT, we get to do a lot of different things and I love that no two days/classes are ever the same! I am also at two different campuses so that really rings true! I am a graduate of The University of North Texas. Go Mean Green! I have 14 years in education with 3 years teaching GT in LEISD. Go Lobos!
My husband and I live a very full life with our 3 boys. My husband works as an account manager for a mortgage software company and enjoys coaching baseball for our boys. Our oldest (Blake) is in middle school and is growing up too fast. He has found his passion in acting and we often are racing him to/from rehearsals. Our middle (Luke) is our creative and shy kiddo who enjoys being active. He is the catcher for his baseball team and loves being with his friends. Our youngest (Landon) is a kind hearted basbeball lover. If you ever met him, he most likely talked you into throwing him some baseballs or playing catch while becoming best friends. In my spare time, I enjoy working out with my husband at Farrell's in Little Elm or spending time with my favorite people relaxing at home. :-)
