BIOGRAPHY

Michelle Jackson

Mentoring Teacher

Hello, my name is Michelle and I grew up in West Jordan, UT, but have lived many places. Some of these places include Colorado, Florida, Georgia, Illinois, and New York. I love to travel and see new places. 

I studied Early Childhood and Elementary Education at Utah State University. I extended this work to include a Masters Degree in Elementary Education with most of my coursework in Literacy. I started my career as a Kindergarten teacher and, when I came to Franklin, migrated to Second Grade. What I like most about Franklin is that we are not afraid to try new things.

On the rare chance that I have a spare minute, I enjoy reading a nice long book. I prefer nonfiction. I enjoy writing and have experience in many writing forms including Poetry, blog posts, and email newsletters. It is my goal to help my students discover the stories within themselves and learn to love writing. We all have a story within us.

At home, I have one sparkly little girl and one busy little boy.
