Welcome to the page of  Mrs. Jackson

Phone: (812) 462-4307

Hello! Thank you for visiting. My name is Mrs. Joy Jackson and I am blessed to be a kindergarten teacher here at Rio Grande. I graduated from Indiana State University in 2002 with a degree in Early Childhood Education and a Kindergarten endorsement. I have been teaching kindergarten ever since. I have lived in north Terre Haute for most of my life and am proud to be raising my own three children in the same community. My husband and I love to travel when we aren’t watching our kids in their own activities. If I could do anything at all it would be to read, read, read. It is my favorite hobby and I enjoy carrying it over into the classroom. I hope my students grow to enjoy learning and reading as much as I do.
