What the school division said about this Excellent Educator: Alyssa Jackson gets donations from surrounding companies for our teachers and students. She assists with various activities, like monthly raffles, mailing prizes to students, and organizing activities for teachers. Recently she worked with Walmart to get donations for healthy snacks for the teachers’ return to school this week. It was a major morale booster!
