Amber Jackson

Gold Hill Elementary
Fourth Grade Teacher
Amber Jackson’s philosophy of education is rooted in the belief that education is a civil right for all students and that all children are capable of learning. Community service is the vehicle she believes best accomplishes this goal of teaching her students HOW to learn. Phenomenal educators, she believe, foster leadership and motivation in their students, refusing to allow students to fail to believe in and love themselves. Since the summer of 2011, Jackson has served children and young adults through summer learning and school year opportunities. Transitioning from a summer learning Freedom Schools classroom into Charlotte-Mecklenburg public schools, Jackson has created opportunities to actualize her dream of celebrating and strengthening children every day. Her role with the nonprofit Freedom School Partners has evolved over time from Servant Leader Intern, to Site Coordinator, Regional Site Coordinator, Interim Member of the Board, and most recently Regional Operations Manager. Jackson currently teaches fourth grade in the Fort Mill School District in South Carolina. Jackson is a graduate of Winthrop University (BS Elementary Education, 2011), dually certified in K-12 Social Studies for both North and South Carolina, and a graduate student at Gardner-Webb University (Teacher Leadership in Curriculum & Instruction, Urban Education).
