Welcome! My name is Kristin Jacks, and I am so excited to be a Brookwood Middle Panther this year!!
I grew up in North Alabama and graduated from New Hope High School in Madison County (near Huntsville). My then boyfriend-now husband, Patrick, and I came to Tuscaloosa to attend The University of Alabama and made this our home. We have two girls, Natalie who attends Northridge High and Tabitha who attends BWES. We've been married for a little over 24 years, and it really does get better with age!
My first degree from UA is in journalism (1997). I love to write and still have the occasional article in Kids Life magazine. My masters from UA is from the Multiple Abilities Program (MAP) where I received teacher certification in both general and special education (2009). I attended grad school with a family and a surprise pregnancy...proving that anyone can pursue their dreams with the right support and drive!
The classroom is my passion, and I hope it shows!! Please email me any time at firstname.lastname@example.org.
