Welcome to North Jackson Elementary. My name is Debbie Dickerson and I am a preschool teacher at NJE. I have taught preschool for 22 years. I have a lifetime certificate for teaching birth through preschool age children from the Kentucky Department of Education. I graduated from Western Kentucky University with a Bachelor's Degree in Elementary Education in 1990. In 1995, I graduated from Western KY University with a Master's Degree in Elementary Education. This is my seventh year here in the Barren County School District. Teaching preschool age children is my passion. I like to provide the preschool children with many opportunities to explore hands-on learning activities that encourages them to be creative in their thinking and develop problem-solving techniques. I look forward to getting to know your child and working with him/her this school year.
