Who am I? Hello, I'm Angela Johnson Lacy and counselor at Jackson Elementary. I am a proud graduate of Chapel Hill ISD. I received my Bachelor's in Science from University of Texas at Tyler and Master's in Education from Texas A & M-Commerce. I am married to my wonderful husband Benny and we have two sons Shakendrick and Adrian.
Why work at Jackson? Working at Jackson has been a great experience for so many reasons, but mostly due to the wonderful faculty, staff, students, parents and community. I love this community. They treat me like family. One of the best parts of my job is working with the grandchild of someone with whom I attended high school.
Why teach? Making a difference in the life of a child has always been one of my passions. One of the best feelings in the world is when you get to a see a student who came from some pretty unique circumstances as a young child perservere thourgh all of his or her "stuff" that he or she had no control over, but yet, he or she did not allow "stuff" to hinder him or her from his or her goal of graduating high school. We need to all try and have that determination of 'we fall down, but we get back up."
