Welcome! My name is Kristin Jacks, and I really love being a Brookwood Panther! This is my 5th year at Brookwood Middle, my 10th year as a certified teacher, and my overall 20th year teaching.
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 The University of Alabama and Tabitha who attends BWMS. We've been married for 28 years!
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.
