Mrs. Karen Oates-Jackson


I am Karen Oates-Jackson, but your child knows me as simply Mrs. Jackson, and I have the pleasure of guiding your child through English I during the 2018-19 school year.  I am extremely excited to be at the Ninth Grade Center for another year, and I look forward to the challenges and successes that the coming months will bring.

This will be my thirteenth year in education, all teaching English at the middle school and high school level. I earned my undergraduate degree at the University of Phoenix in Englewood, Colorado, and my MBA in Marketing Strategy at Regis University of Professional Studies in Denver, Colorado.  I entered education through an alternative certification program, and it was the best career decision I could have made, as I have a sincere passion for engaging the hearts and minds of our future generations.

I have been married for just over 24 years, and I am the proud mother of an awesome daughter who’s currently a member of the Fighting Texas Aggie Class of 2020 at Texas A&M University. I am also the pet parent of an extremely spoiled Maltipoo who demands most of my attention when I’m not at school.  In my spare time, I love to travel, read, write, scrapbook and binge watch TV with my husband.

Please do not hesitate to contact me if you have questions or concerns about your child’s progress in class, and thank you for taking an active part in your child’s academic success, it is truly appreciated.
