Jones County Exceptional Children Teacher of Excellence
Hi everyone, my name is Jackie Kiernan. I am the Exceptional Children Teacher/Case Manager at Maysville Elementary School. I am originally from England where I grew up and went to school. I have served in the military (British Army) and was also a military wife (U.S. Army). I have three sons and two grandsons...... all of them a handful!! Two sons live in Jacksonville and my youngest son is serving his country with the U.S. Army in Alaska. He has just returned from a year's tour in Afghanistan. We are glad to have him back in the United States safe and sound.
I have worked in education since 1998. I began my career in the public school system teaching middle and high school. In 2007 I transitioned into higher education at the community college level. In my previous position I coordinated the Adult Basic Education Program (GED and Adult High School Diplomas) and Compensatory Education Program (Exceptional Adult classes). I have recently moved back to this area to be closer to my family. I have been very fortunate to join and participate in the Maysville community and be a part of the Maysville Elementary School family.
My educational achievements consist of a B.S. degree in Psychology, an Exceptional Children K-12 grade teaching credential, and a M.S. in Education degree. I am truly thrilled to be here! I have already met many parents and hope to meet many more as the school year continues. I couldn't ask for a better team to work with at Maysville Elementary School and our students are awesome!
