Mrs. Shnell Jackson (M-Z)

Mrs. Jackson and Family I was born and raised right here in the city of Ferris and graduated high school in the Class of 2002.  I went on to Texas A&M-commerce where I was on the track and field team, became a member of Alpha Kappa Alpha Sorority Incorporated, and received my Bachelor of Science in Mathematics.  I came back home and began teaching in 2006. I have proudly served all 12 years of my education career here in Ferris.


I started my career as an Algebra 2 and Pre-Calculus teacher and head coach of Track and Field. I went to graduate school at the University of North Texas and received my Masters in Education Administration.  In my 5th year of education I became the Girls Athletic Coordinator were I remained until I began my principalship.


In my time here in Ferris, I have won district championships, written curriculum, mentored teachers, and led every team I have coached to district championships. I have also had athletes make and place in UIL State athletic meets.    


In July of 2012, I married a Mississippian named Shon Jackson.  In February of 2016, I gave birth to three beautiful babies (two boys and a girl), Zander, Zavier and Zoe and we have an 11 year old named Shon Jr.  I look forward to my continued growth as an administrator in this district and will strive to help our students in the community of Ferris have a successful future.
