Vallicia Blackshear

5th Grade SOTA
Math and Science Teacher



I am a native of Cleveland, Ohio, home of the 2016 NBA Champions.  My teaching experience began at Kilpatrick Elementary in 2002 as a fifth grade teacher.  I left Kilpatrick and taught in Brooklyn, NY for a year then returned to Georgia to teach at Jackson Elementary, where I have made my home.

My desire to teach has always been strong ever since I was a child, I enjoyed showing my peers and family how to do things, and playing “school” was always my favorite game.  My experience spans all ages, I have a degree in Elementary Education, Adult Learning and Development, and my Specialist Degree in Leadership.   After receiving my bachelor’s degree in Elementary Education, I worked in a Head Start program in several positions until I came to Georgia.  I have taught 5th grade most of my career, and I love this grade level.  Over the course of my career, I have made it my goal to learn as much as I can about making education, (especially Math and Science), fun and engaging for all students.

I look forward to working with you and your child this year.  Please do not hesitate to contact me regarding any issues that may arise in the classroom.  My classroom is ran under very high expectations and rigor; however, I work with students at their level to assist in their continued development.

Educationally Yours,

Ms. Blackshear
