Pathways to Teaching

  • Student Teacher Internship Program

    Jackson Public Schools recognizes that our primary responsibility is to provide an exceptional knowledge base to our scholars.

    Providing learning opportunities to interns and student teachers will not only ensure they are better qualified to enter the educational workforce upon graduation, but they may also be encouraged to seek employment with the school district upon successful completion of the field experience.

    For more information regarding the student teaching opportunities, contact the JPS Manager of Teacher Support and Retention, Janet Wallace at 601-985-3159, or by email at
