Thank you!

Thank you all for the outpouring of love and support since the passing of Jill on August 14, 2020.

We have heard many, many stories of Jill’s books and trainings having a great impact on so many educators across the US. As a family, we take great joy in knowing that Jill’s work impacted so many students and teachers directly.

After much prayer and discussion, we have decided to continue Jill’s great legacy!

Michael, Jill’s brother and business partner, has decided to take on the role of Managing Partner and his team is developing a plan for the remainder of 2020 and into 2021.

We are excited to continue to serve and grow this community!

With love,

The Jill Jackson Team

I’m So Glad You Dropped In

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.  And throughout all of those miles and time spent with educators, I’ve come to realize this: we are best (and we get the best results) when we keep things simple in the classroom

I know that simple works and I’m practically obsessed with helping you simplify your teaching life. I also know that successful teachers are happy teachers… and I’m totally convinced that all of us teacher-types have to have a life outside of education to be happy in the classroom.

So… let’s say that we get on with the simple part, OK?
