With many years as an elementary school teacher, a teacher educator, university administrator, keynote speaker and coach, Jackie is passionate about inspiring teachers to be the best teachers they can be, so they will be agents of change.
Her work at Hearts and Minds Matter is grounded in her belief that schools must be safe, nurturing communities where teachers understand the most effective pedagogy so they can meet the needs of all of their students.
Jackie believes that teachers are able to make a difference in the world when they are able to tap into their own understanding of self and others. Jackie’s doctoral research on the ethics of care demonstrates her core value of the importance of caring connections in all of life’s relationships.
Jackie received her Coaches Training and Leadership Certification from the Coaches Training Institute in 2011 and has also led Tribes, Mindfulness, Emotional Intelligence, Personality Dimensions and Resiliency Workshops across North America and the West Indies.
