Hello. I’m Paul Jackson.

I was born and raised in Garden City, Kansas. My parents decided to homeschool myself and three sisters from grades K through 12.

I’ve been a welder, farmhand, and construction worker. I’ve been a T.A. for a Psych class at my community college. In the last few years, I’ve worked with youth and adults in group homes.

My parents instilled in me a love of learning. That’s led to the past few years of earning a B.S degree in Psychology and continuing to attain a Master’s in Educational Psychology.

I’d love to teach Psychology someday.

My path to a Master’s and more…
