Chris Jackson

Hello Grizzlies! I’m a Learning Specialist at John Warner. This will be my 12th year teaching in Columbia Public Schools, and all my previous years were spent at Gentry Middle School. I’m excited to be part of the of the inaugural year at JWMS! I am passionate about teaching and helping students become better learners and responsible citizens. I have a Bachelor’s Degree in Communications and Masters degrees in Special Education and Social Work. My favorite quote is “Everybody is a genius. But if you judge a fish by its ability to climb a tree, it will live its whole life believing that it is stupid.” Albert Einstein

I’ve been happily married for 33 years and have 2 sons. I enjoy spending time with family, and I participate in CrossFit. I believe that the best things in life are not things.
