I am Carla Jackson, and I fell in love with education many years ago. My first experience with the desire to teach education happened when I was finishing up my bachelor’s degree at Morris College in Sumter, South Carolina. While as a student at Morris, I was afforded the opportunity to volunteer in the campus daycare, where my love for teaching began. That love continued to grow as I studied Maria Montessori’s work and taught Montessori lower elementary students for ten years in the Charlotte Mecklenburg School system. During my time at CMS, I was selected as an honoree of the Coca-Cola’s “Teacher of the Year” award. When I am not impacting the leaders of tomorrow, I enjoy gardening, listening to music, cooking, and travel. I am so excited to start the next chapter of my teaching career at Monroe Charter School.
