It only took Angelia Jackson one year after receiving her certification to teach entrepreneurship for two of her students to be recognized as Student Entrepreneurs of the Year by YEScarolina. Mrs. Jackson has the drive, commitment, and singular ability to motivate her students, and she wouldn’t have had it any other way. A dedicated educator who’s been on a mission to make a difference since she knew she wanted to be a teacher at 10 years old. Mrs. Jackson challenges her students to elevate their thinking on what’s possible. She’s a natural leader, both in the classroom and as the leading lady and the pastor’s wife at her church, who knows that empathy and a little patience goes a long way in bringing out the best in people.
