Hello, everyone! My name is Mr. Jackson. Everyone knows me as Russell Jackson. I am excited about entering my second year at Sallas Mahone Elementary, SME, as one of Dr. Haugabrook’s assistant principals. I am looking forward to one of our greatest years ever at SME. We would like to thank the guardians of the most important people at SME - our students! Thank you for entrusting us to provide a safe environment where your children can reach their greatest potential. It is our goal to create a continued supportive and caring atmosphere as your children leave your home and come to our home at SME.I have been in education for over 20 years. I started my educational career as a teacher at J. L. Newbern Middle School. I then taught at Lowndes Middle School. As I mentioned before, I am now in my second year at SME. I am extremely excited to be at SME! I am married to my beautiful wife, who is an educator as well. We have two wonderful daughters. I would like to thank Dr. Haugabrook for giving me the opportunity to serve the SME community. My philosophy is that, given the proper positive affirmation, every child can learn and succeed! I promise to give you and your children my best everyday!
