Ms. Alicia Jackson


My name is Alicia M. Jackson, Superintendent of the Georgia Academy for the Blind. I began my teaching career at GAB on January 4, 2004, and it has been the best 20 years of my career. Prior to assuming the role of Superintendent, I was the Principal of Transition, where my primary responsibility was to plan, implement, and monitor all things transition for our young scholars. I was also the instructor of the extraordinarily successful Project SEARCH program, which is an Internationally recognized, business-led, one-year, school-to-work initiative that takes place entirely at one of our local businesses.

I currently hold a bachelor's degree in political science from Auburn University, a Master's degree, and a Specialist's degree in Special Education from Georgia College and State University, along with certification in Educational Leadership and various Special Education disciplines. I am an avid reader and education is and should be a life-long endeavor. 

As Superintendent, it is my goal to ensure that all students meet their highest level of potential as they prepare to become college and career-ready. This can only be accomplished by working in tandem with all stakeholders which includes our parents/guardians, our student scholars, our teachers and staff, and our community partners. 

Journey along with me as we mold our young scholars into independent, self-determined, and goal-driven learners. It indeed takes a village!
