Dear Potential Teachers,
JacksonFive is a special place. It is hard to ignore God’s presents here. I’ve seen students, parents, teachers and myself change in the best possible way, through God’s love and grace. It is wonderful to see God’s miraculous way of answering prayers and healing hearts.
I feel that God has chosen JacksonFive to be a vessel of his love, because of Angel and Jackson’s devotion and trust in him. The aim here is to work towards God’s plan. Jesus knows where we have been hurt, our weakness and strengths. Employees at JacksonFive are the tools to help shape the children in the places where God knows they need help. You must trust in God in order to help him heal and help the students. Sometimes it is not easy, but God is with us.
Love, prayer and the word of God are an important part of the school’s foundation. Each week the staff prays together for the students and each other. Teachers are also encouraged to teach about God and pray with their students. There is power in prayer.
Jackson and Angel are very open about their faith. Teaching the word of God here is not a clandestine mission. Jackson on a regular basis writes to the parents about how God has helped him and his students. Jackson and Angel also have several classes to educate parents and staff about Jesus. At this time, most of the parents are not Christian; but we believe God has brought each student, parent and staff member to JacksonFive for a reason. If you are interested in working for JacksonFive, please pray and trust the answer God puts in your heart.

Working at JacksonFive school has been a really positive experience for me. It is encouraging to be able to share my faith with the children and the other staff who are not Christians. I don’t have to be afraid to share my faith because working for a Christian couple, it is expected that I will do that. It has been wonderful to see God working in the lives of the children, parents and staff here. The environment that I work in is warm and friendly. If I need help with anything, I know that all I have to do is ask and anyone here is more than willing to do anything they can to help me. When I have something that I need prayer for, I know that I only have to ask and I will be prayed for faithfully. During my time at JacksonFive school, I have learned a lot about teaching, myself and God’s faithfulness and love. Even though I have learned a lot there is still so much more to learn. It has been a great blessing and privilege to work at JacksonFive School. I will never regret being here because I know this is where God called me to be and I have been changed for the better through my time here.
