Ms. Mary Jackson
My name is Mary Jackson, and I am one of two music teachers at Richland Elementary. I earned my Bachelor of Music Education degree and Orff-Schulwerk certificate from the University of Memphis, and currently hold a certified endorsement in ESL from Henderson State University. This is my 21st year in the music classroom, and my 11th year as an elementary music educator.
When I'm not teaching music or performing music with friends, I enjoy a variety of outdoor activites, including kayaking, hiking, and cycling.
