Mrs Jackson – Senior Teacher

When did you start in Glengormley High and what roles have you undertaken?
I started Glengormley High School in 1991 as a year 8 pupil. After pursuing Further Education at the University of Ulster I returned to work as a PE teacher at Glengormley High School in September 2004. Since then I have held positions as Head of Girls PE, Teacher in Charge of Performing Arts, Head of Year and Pastoral Learning Leader. In September 2018 I began my role as a Senior Teacher.
What is your key function in Glengormley High School?
As a past pupil myself I feel passionately about seeing every child reach their full potential. I will work to ensure that as far as possible the barriers that children face to learning are removed and they can achieve. I will build close relationships with pupils, parents and staff to ensure that our school community is one where everyone feels respected and valued.
