Hello, my name is Mr. Jackson. This is my 20th year in the district and it is my second year at JFK High School. It has been a great start so far.
I graduated fifth out of 488 students in my graduating class at Carthage High School. During high school I played football, baseball, basketball, tennis, and soccer. I exceeded in all sports. In football and baseball I was first team all-district, first team all-region and first team all-area. Carthage won the state title for the 3rd year in a row. Go Bulldogs!!!!
From high school I went on to Panola College http://www.panola.edu where I attended school and played baseball. The two years that I was there our baseball team went to the the national championships both years. After two years there I graduated with an associate degree in computer science. After Panola College I went to Stephen F. Austin State University (SFASU) http://www.sfasu.edu. While at SFA I played football and baseball. I graduated there with a finance degree along with my teaching certification.
My teaching certification is in business. I also have a Microsoft Certification as a MCP , a CISCO Certification(Networking) , an A+ Certification, and I am MOUS Certified . I love working on computers and designing networks. I am always looking to learn something new and I am never intimidated by new things.
I really enjoy seeing that light bulb turn on in the eyes of each and every student that I come in contact with. I try to keep the following statement in the forefront of everything that I do. "Always remember one thing, everyone that you come in contact with becomes a part of you and most importantly you become a part of them." If we all would live by that simple rule, life would be much more enjoyable. I love coaching football and softball at Kennedy.
