Mrs. Jessie Ackerson

I'm a critical-thinking silly-heart, a lover of art and science, and a constant explorer of the many wonders and curiosities of Creation. The years I've spent teaching in our Dual Language program have provided me with an irresistible challenge and endless opportunity for growth, all while offering the same to my students. There's little that I enjoy more than delving into the wondrous depths and mysteries of our Creator and Papa with a group of curious, awestruck kids. I love the way they and I alike grow close to Him as we consider the intricate, miraculous and surprising ways He engages with each of us.

I hold teaching degrees and certifications in a variety of areas, but I find that the best learning experiences have been in my own classroom, where I constantly adapt to the ever changing needs, interests, abilities, learning styles, quirks and puzzles each young explorer brings to my room. What a delightfully exhausting and deeply fulfilling experience these years have been!

I have an awesome husband who also teaches here at CPCS, and contributes equally to the upkeep of our house and the raising of our 2 boys, so I can fully engage with teaching. When we're not teaching, the four of us love exploring nature, watching documentaries, and playing board games together. Ok, so the baby doesn't play board games yet. But he will.

I have no idea how I would pick a favorite Bible verse, but here's one that has stuck with me for a very long time, and serves me well:  "Finally, brothers and sisters, whatever is true, whatever is noble, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is admirable - if anything is excellent or praiseworthy - think about such things."  Philippians 4:8
