Staff Profile/English Language Department


Renee Jackson

I have spent almost 30 years teaching in four different countries. My background includes, computer programming, television producer, business owner, English teacher, STEM teacher and mom.


As a teacher, I aim to create an atmosphere that encourages curiosity and sheer determination. I am a teacher who makes it possible for her students to reach their full potential, ask questions, learn from their mistakes, give and receive feedback, create and try their best. Together, we celebrate each other's success and inspire each other to be the best person that we can be.


I believe my role as an English teacher is to provide various learning activities and opportunities that will aide in the development of each and every student and to build in them the ability and desire to become lifelong learners. My aim is to engage all students in active learning through whole group, small group, and centre based learning experiences. It is my responsibility to get to know my students individually so that I can tailor my lessons to best fit their needs. I strive to bring enthusiasm and creativity to my classroom in order to develop a love of learning and to create lifelong learners.
