Jackie earned a Bachelor's Degree in Elementary Education from The University of Iowa and a Master's Degree in Elementary School Counseling from Creighton University.
Her many years working with students from Pre-Kindergarten through 6th grade in a variety of settings has allowed her the opportunity to work with a diverse student and family population throughout the city of Omaha. This experience will help her guide teacher candidates down a path that leads to success working with diverse populations.
Jackie believes people want to be the best they can be and often times just need support and guidance. The education field is in need of strong teachers and Jackie cannot think of a more rewarding job than helping to prepare students for this responsibility.
