barbiepic-2

What’s your first and last name?

  • Barbie Jackson

What do you teach / what is your ‘title’ at school?

  • 3rd grade teacher

How are you involved in education?

  • I’ve taught in Sand Springs for 12 years. I currently teach 3rd grade in a self contained classroom. I am a public education advocate. I strongly believe in making our voices heard at the Capitol. I also manage the Sand Springs Parents Action and Advocacy Team facebook page: https://www.facebook.com/SandSpringsPaat

What does your ideal school or classroom look like?

  • My ideal classroom is one where every student is engaged in authentic learning with the use of technology, collaboration, and hands-on projects. High Stakes Testing would not exist. Kids would come to school ready to learn and teachers come to school to teach and inspire students to greatness.

If you were to lead a session at Edcamp, what would it be about?

  • I would lead a session on Class Dojo. It has improved my classroom management and opened communication with parents.

Do you have a website or blog?
