Assistant Principal's Message
Degrees and Certifications:
Dear Pine Ridge Families,
My name is Yvonne Jackson, and I am thrilled to be entering the 2019-2020 school year as the new assistant principal of this amazing school community. I have spent the past 14 years at Village East Elementary; ten years as a teacher, two years as a PBIS coach, and the last two years as the assistant principal. I am incredibly excited to be a part of an amazing and supportive community. I have enjoyed meeting the talented and supportive staff and your wonderful students. I also am looking forward to meeting each and every one of you. There are many assets that we all bring to the Pine Ridge community, and I am excited to learn and grow with all of you!
Though this will be my first year at Pine Ridge, I am confident I can step in and be a wonder asset to this community. I am following in the footsteps of a great leader, Dr. Famularo, who has emblazoned and established an excellent pattern of achievement and success. I look forward to working alongside Mrs. Woodward to continue to sere this community.
I grew up in a bilingual and bicultural family where education was of the upmost importance. I continue to instill this value into my 7 year old son who attends school in the district. I value and appreciate the diversity in the district, believe in the work that is being done and am grateful for the opportunities that I, and my son, have experienced.
I look forward to working with all of you this school year. Please feel free to stop by ABD introduce yourselves as you see me around the building. Let's join forces as we continue the belief of every child, every day.
