The Academy

Teresa Jackman - Title 1

I have Idaho Education Credentials for both Standard Elementary All Subjects K-3 and K-8. I am also a Spalding Certified Teacher Instructor and have adjunct faculty status at universities in Idaho, Utah, Colorado, and Arizona. I volunteer for teacher input whenever the Idaho State Department of Education needs help. I also volunteer as the Government Relations-Political Action Committee for Education representative for Region 5 of the Idaho Education Association.

I am married to Rick Jackman. We have three daughters: Shellee, Jessica and Amber and one son Kyle Lester. All of them are now adults. Shellee lives in Nampa and works as a Montessori Pre-school teacher. Jessica lives here in Pocatello and works as a Paralegal for a bankruptcy trustee. Amber also lives in Pocatello, and owns Nails by Amber as well as does jewelry home shows for Premiere Designs Jewelry. She has three wonderful children: Paige (13), Sophia (9) and Terrick (6). Kyle and Shanna will celebrate their eighth wedding anniversary this fall. They have a fabulous little son, Silas Max (1).  They live in Oakesdale, Washington. Kyle works for food services at The College of Idaho in Moscow and Shanna works and works and works at home.

Spending time with my husband, children and grandchildren brings me great joy. I also enjoy reading, movies and popcorn, and working outdoors in my garden. But most of all I love traveling, and riding my 4-wheeler in the sand, mountains, steep rocky slopes and sometimes just in the yard.

I am the Title 1 Director and Reading Coordinator at our school. This is my sixth year at The Academy. I feel truly enjoy my work at a school where learning is the focus of administration, teachers, parents and students. I am pleased to be a member of The Academy school family. The Harbor Philosophy along with its inherit promise of accelerated learning fits precisely with my own belief system. I love coming to work each day!
