Welcome to 2nd Grade!           We are in the home stretch of the 4th nine weeks! Welcome back to the Jazzy Jackson class page! My name is Octavia Jackson and I am a 7-year educator. I was born and raised in Jackson, MS to a mother and father along with three brothers and two sisters, all of Jackson, MS. I have been married to my wonderful husband, Victor Jackson for 7 1/2 years and we have one daughter, Kylea' and one puppy, Hunter. I have begin to prepare my 2nd graders to become in the mindset of a 3rd grader, pushing deeper into our College and Career Readiness Standards and in their thinking. Our class is FULL of learning through hands-on, engaging and thought-provoking activities. I look forward to continuing to have the best year yet with my students!!
