Kristine Jackson
Westside Elementary





Hello! Welcome to my website.  I am a kindergarten teacher at Westside Elementary.  This is my 17th year teaching and my 16th year teaching kindergarten.  I have a bachelor's degree in Early Childhood Education from Shorter College, a master's degree in Leadership from Jacksonville State University, and a specialist degree in Curriculum and Instruction from Lincoln Memorial University.  I am married to Phillip Jackson.  I have 2 daughters: Lily (14) and Layla (10).  I have been teaching for 17 years at Westside Elementary.  I am so excited about teaching your child this year! If you have any questions or concerns please let me know.


Educational Philosophy:  My values in education lie within each and every child that I teach.  I feel that every child has the capability to learn and that it is my job to help these children discover the roads that will lead them to success.  I believe that through hard work and cooperation between teachers, parents, and administrators, every child can be given the skills that they need in order to live a full and productive life.  I believe that a strong foundation must be laid in the lower grades before a child has what they need to move forward, and it is my job to see to it that every child leaving my classroom has a strong start.
