"The need to foster learning and generate curiosity in children is an integral part of my life," says Jackie Wilcox, teacher of fifth grade students at Cannon Ball Elementary School in Cannon Ball. She strives to meet the individual learning needs of her students by continually developing new teaching techniques. Co-author of a hands-on curriculum resource book for teachers, Ms. Wilcox finds it personally and professionally gratifying to share new ideas by means of conducting workshops, developing curricula and serving as a mentor to other teachers. She is currently enrolled in a master's program of her own design in multicultural education. Ms. Wilcox was a recipient of the 1991 Presidential Award for Excellence in Elementary Science Teaching.
