Tierra Jackson

...

Welcome to the 2018-2019 School Year!

My name is Tierra Jackson (formerly known as Ms. Howard) and I am one of the 4th Grade Math Teachers located in Room A308. 

Background: Grew up in Saint Paul, MN and attended K-12 in the Twin Cities. Attended the University of Minnesota - Twin Cities and earned my Bachelors of Science in Youth Studies with a minor in African & African American Studies

Current: Been teaching at UA for four years in 4th Grade (with this being my 6th year teaching altogether) and just recently completed my second Masters in Educational Administration (K-12) from the University of Kansas. 

I just got married in July of 2018 and will be expecting a bundle of love with my husband in December! 

Every year we focus heavily on three traits
Respect
Community
Self-Confidence 


I believe that these are big in the 4th grade and together as a 4th grade class we will be exploring what different types of respect looks like, how we can become a community and what it looks to be a sef-confident 4th graders in preparation for the 5th grade! 

Your student will be held to high academic and behavioral expectations all grounded in the belief that they can and will succeed. 

   I am extremely excited to be working with the scholars here at University Academy and am predicting an excellent year!
