Fort Worth ISD Introduces 2020-21 Teaching Chairs of Excellence Bernita Jackson, Trimble Tech High School

Bernita Jackson

Trimble Tech High School

Crescent Real Estate Chair for Teaching Excellence in Career & Technical Education

Bernita has a bachelor’s degree from Prairie View A&M University and has taught in FWISD 34 years. She sets high expectations for her students because she believes everyone is capable of being great if they put forth the effort and work hard. This sentiment goes for teachers, too. “Students look to you for guidance, for assurance they are worthwhile, and for respect. Students want someone they can count on, and they will respect you when they know you care about them. They give back to you what you give to them.”
