  1. She was an awesome lady and had a heart of gold for her students !!! She taught me so much @Tarleton. She has gained her Angel wings and will never be forgotten!!

  2. Mrs. Jackson was a great and inspiring math teacher when I was at Tarleton. She made the content related and shared bits of herself in each lesson. She was such a kind soup. I’m so sorry to her family for the loss.
