Tierra Jackson

...

Welcome to the 2019-2020 School Year!

My name is Tierra Jackson (formerly known as Ms. Howard) and I will be teaching Math 2 in 5th Grade located in Room A305. 

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. I have one Masters in Elementary Education from the University of Missouri - Saint Louis and another Masters in K-12 Administration from the University of Kansas. 

Current: I have been working at University Academy for the past five years with this being my 7th year in the classroom. I have worked for the past five years as a 4th grade teacher and this will be my first year teaching 5th grade math.


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


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! 

Go GOPHERS!
