My name is Roshanda Jackson. I graduated from Clarke County High School in 1997. I attended Alabama State University in Montgomery, Alabama where I received a Bachelor’s degree in Elementary Education (2001). I received my Masters and Educational Specialist degrees in Educational Leadership from the University of West Alabama, Livingston. I received National Board Certification in November 2008. I have a total of 17 years of experience in education: I’ve taught 4th grade for 1 year in Killeen, TX and 16 years in Wilcox County (3rd-grade teacher, 6th-grade teacher, reading coach, assistant principal, and principal).  I am currently serving as the Principal at Westside Elementary in Demopolis, Alabama. I am married and I have two girls Janiecia and Shantavia Jackson.

My Philosophy

I believe each and every child has the potential to bring something unique and special to the world. I will help children to develop their potential by believing in them as capable individuals. I will assist children in discovering who they are, so they can express their own opinions and nurture their own ideas. I am here to encourage, facilitate and promote student success.
