Telling the truth about teaching… and getting on with life!
Well… that’s me in a nutshell! I’m Jill Jackson and I’m a teacher who has a great life that I also want to go out and live! Since 2002, I’ve traveled over 1,250,000 miles and have trained thousands of educators about how to teach reading, plan for interventions and manage the latest education crazes so they don’t lose their marbles.

I know that simple works and I’m practically obsessed with helping you simplify your teaching life.
