Mrs. Resa Brooksher

Welcome to South Jackson Elementary School!  I am very excited about serving as principal of this great school.  I have been in education for 24 years and have been fortunate to spend all of those years in the Jackson County School System. I was a teacher at SJES for 15 years and served as assistant principal for instruction for 3 years before taking a principal position at North Jackson Elementary.  I am thankful for the opportunity to serve the students and families at SJES and look forward to another great year.

As principal of South Jackson, I would like to share my key beliefs with you:

  • Administrators, teachers, students, and parents should give 100% throughout their educational experiences.
  • Communication is the key to a successful organization.
  • True learning comes from quality instruction, high expectations, parent support, and challenging all students.
  • Parents are a school’s greatest resource for promoting and sustaining learning.

Our faculty and staff excel in their respective areas.  They encourage and expect students to stretch themselves beyond their comfort zone to realize that all things are possible through dedication and determination.  Classroom instruction at South Jackson stimulates eager minds and helps to foster a joy of learning.

I want the best for each of your children!  Your concerns, comments, and ideas are appreciated and respected.  You may contact me at 706-543-8798 or by e-mail at

At South Jackson Elementary School we are committed to “Excellence In Action” each and every day!  Again, I look forward to a wonderful year and promise to give my very best for this outstanding school community.
