I am Karen Oates-Jackson, but your child knows me as simply Mrs. Jackson, and I have the pleasure of assisting your child with their transition to high school, as their English I teacher. I am extremely excited to be back in Duncanville ISD, and at Duncanville High School. I look forward to the challenges and successes that the coming year will bring.
This will be my fourteenth year in education, all teaching English at the middle school and high school level. I earned my undergraduate degree at the University of Phoenix in Englewood, Colorado, and my MBA in Marketing Strategy at Regis University of Professional Studies in Denver, Colorado. I entered education through an alternative certification program, and it was the best career decision I could have made, as I have a sincere passion for engaging the hearts and minds of our future generations.
I have been married for 25 years, and I am the proud mother of an awesome daughter who recently graduated from Texas A&M University and is currently living her best life in Chicago. IL. I am also guardian to my 15-year-old nephew Kelvin who keeps me on my toes. Lastly, I am the pet parent of an extremely spoiled Maltipoo who demands most of my attention when I’m not at school. In my spare time, I love to travel, read, write, scrapbook and binge watch TV with my husband.
Please do not hesitate to contact me if you have questions or concerns about your child’s progress in class, and thank you for taking an active part in your child’s education, it is truly appreciated.
