Life is meant to be lived; cherish the exciting moments, and relish in those all too brief moments of relaxation. I am here to live my own life, and live it passionately. Ms. Jackson's Learning Space serves as a vessel for students to engage in their learning and seek out additional learning opportunities outside of the classroom! So, sit back, relax, and read on.
