Mrs. Jackie Richardson

Hello and Welcome! My name is Jackie Richardson. This is my 22nd year at HEART Academy at Julian Newman Elementary School. I graduated from Athens State University with a B.S. in Elementary Education. I also have my Masters from Alabama A & M University in Normal, Alabama. I am married with two children. My son is married and has three beautiful girls. They keep me young at heart. I enjoy spending time with my family, reading inspirational books, and watching movies. I love first grade and I enjoy teaching and watching my students grow througout the year. My goal is to meet the needs of every student in my classroom. I am looking forward to a wonderful school year filled with fun, curiosity, and learning.


  • Reading daily with your child is important. There is a wealth of research supporting daily reading with your child especially prior to and during the period when she/he is learning to read. Reading 20 or more minutes a day can benefit your child in many ways. Snuggle up and read great books with your child!
