Welcome to 1st Grade with Miss Jackson

  • me Hi there! My name is Jessica Jackson (Miss Jackson) and I am so excited to be your child's teacher this year! Here is a little bit of information about who I am. I am a graduate of Cal Poly, San Luis Obispo, where I studied Business and Finance. I worked as a CPA for PricewaterhouseCoopers, LLP for a year after graduating, and then I went back to school to obtain my teaching credential. I realized that teaching was my TRUE passion! My first year of teaching was in the San Diego Unified School District and I came to Del Mar the following year. I obtained my Masters in Education at San Diego State University. This is my 17th year of teaching primary students. I have taught a 1st/2nd combo class twice, 1st grade, 2nd grade, and 3rd grade. 

    When I am not teaching, you can find me at Starbucks or Better Buzz drinking an iced coffee, in the pool (I swim on a Masters swim team), at Cycle Bar taking a spin class, at the gym lifting some weights, or at the beach! I also enjoy spending time with my cat, Lionel Kitty (named after my favorite singer Lionel Richie), my new French Bulldog puppy, Kingston, and my 4 nephews and 1 niece.

    These are my "children", Kingston and Lionel Kitty! They keep me VERY busy at home, but I wouldn't want it any other way!
