I have been teaching in Jennings School District for almost 20 years.  During my time here I have taught 1st, 2nd, 3rd, and 4th grades.  Fourth grade has been my absolute favorite. 


Welcome to 4th Grade!


My name is Mrs. Carmen N. Jackson.  I grew up in a small town in Texas.  My family and I now live in a small town in Illinois.  I am NOT a "big city" girl.  I love the tranquility of the cornfields.  We have two awesome daughters.  Makenzy is in 11th grade and Madasyn is in 7th grade.  Both girls are active in sports, band, Girl Scouts, and other school clubs and activities.  There is never a dull or quiet moment in our house, because all of the girls' activities keep us constantly on the move.  We do not have any pets, because we do not have the time to properly care for them.  On the weekends, our family likes to travel to various places just to relax. 


My favorites:


Food--Mexican food

Dessert--chocolate cake


Place to visit--Chicago

Activity--shopping(at any mall on any day of the week) and traveling

TV Show--"Diners, Drive Ins, and Drives"

Movies--Disney's "The Princess and the Frog"

Book--Bud Not Buddy
