We asked Mrs. Jackson…
What is your favorite part about being a teacher?
My favorite part of being a teacher is watching my students grow. Seeing students encourage each other, accomplish a goal together, and build stronger relationships is exciting. I always hope to cultivate a positive, family environment in my classroom, where my kids feel comfortable to persevere and excel as students and people. If I can teach them to always strive for excellence in everything they do, I have reached my goal.
What is your favorite thing about Liberty Christian School?
It is a blessing to pray and worship with my colleagues and my students. Teaching the Word of God each day is an honor, and it challenges me to grow spiritually as well.
More About Mrs. Jackson
Sarah is originally from Cambridge, Ohio. She grew up there and graduated from Cambridge High School. Sarah then left home to attend Anderson University, where she received her Bachelor of Arts in Elementary Education with a minor in Christian Ministries. From there, Sarah began working at NorthKids Learning Center, which was a local daycare sponsored by Madison Park Church of God (her home church). Sarah taught a class of 3-4-year-olds for ten months before she was offered a position at LCS as the Director of the Lunchroom and Kids’ Club during the 2007-2008 year. Just a year later, she accepted a fourth-grade classroom position, and she has taught at LCS ever since.
Sarah is married to Mr. Ryan Jackson, who teaches fourth grade at Frankton Elementary. They feel blessed to both serve as educators, sharing a common passion for kids.
Sarah’s main interests (besides serving Christ, taking care of her husband, and teaching) are music, art, and sports. You can often find her at Madison Park Church of God on Sunday mornings, occasionally singing with the Praise Team or choir. Or you can find her hiding behind her camera taking photos of friends and family. She also enjoys playing tennis, which she played throughout high school years. Mr. and Mrs. Jackson love to bike ride, try new restaurants, attend concerts, or go to sporting events when they have the chance. And you will find them faithfully cheering on the Chicago Cubs during baseball season.
