Allow me to Reintroduce Myself...
Anyone who truly knows me, knows that I love “getting things right”. Almost to a fault…no DEFINITELY, to a fault…(lol). While there are many drawbacks to my perfectionism, I realized that God still wanted to use it all, for His glory.
When I first started “Jackie the Educator” as a blog, I saw so many benefits from sharing on a social platform. This idea was sparked when I read an article that talked about the need for more strategic learning through social media. As I explored this concept through my blog, I noticed that my small efforts, encouraged more people than I ever would have had the capacity to reach, individually. It became clear to me that platforms can be used for more than just fame, they can be used to teach and bring awareness to important issues. Unfortunately, many platforms have been abused, and used only to elevate self-serving individuals. However, there is an opportunity to change this narrative.
Take Will Smith for instance. (If you haven’t seen his Instagram account, you’re missing out) The way he has engaged his followers through social media has been inspiring to watch. He has managed to develop a platform that not only entertains, but encourages, explores, and teaches. As we learn more about who he is, we also are exposed to other experiences we might never have known.
People often ask me, “What the heck is Jackie The Educator?!”
