Mrs. Jane Jackson - Too Young to Retire
At the close of this school year we will be losing one of our most important assets in the math department. Mrs. Jackson, a member of the Brentwood community since 1984 (shortly after graduating from the University of Victoria) has taught so many of us pre-calculus and calculus, helping us understand the most confusing problems. Although I never had Mrs. Jackson as a math teacher, I have had the pleasure of getting to know Mrs. her through cross country running.
Reflecting on her 31 years at the school, Mrs. Jackson said her favorite part of the school was the interaction between students and teachers and how she really felt the family vibes around campus. She feels very fortunate to have spent her entire career “at this amazing school.”
When asked about her post-Brentwood life, she said that she and her husband, Mark, have many plans for a fun and exciting retirement. They are currently building a house in Baja, Mexico and plan to spend most of their winters there where they can enjoy kite surfing and other water sports on the Sea of Cortez. Back in Canada in the summer, she hopes to spend the rest of the time sailing and travelling, while enjoying time with family in the Cowichan Valley.
Though we are sad to see her leave, we wish Mrs. Jackson and her family many amazing adventures to come. We will miss you so much Mrs. Jackson! Thank you for your service as a Mackenzie Houseparent, Assistant Houseparent, teacher and coach of field hockey and cross country over a wonderful 31 years with the Brentwood community!
