Lisa Fox Jackson Iowa - Her Daughter

Lisa Fox Jackson of Iowa is a third grade elementary school teacher at Estes Park Elementary School in Colorado. She is also the mother of a four year old girl who is enrolled in the school's preschool program, and says that it is comforting for her to know that her daughter is always nearby.

She says that she is doing her best to raise her daughter, Anissa Fox Jackson, as an assertive child who is able to stand up to others. So far, she says, it's been a piece of cake.

"This kid started out at full steam, and she's never let up," Lisa Fox Jackson of Iowa says. "Anissa was talking in complete sentences before she was a year and a half old. And I mean complete sentences. She's always been energetic and a complete social butterfly." She says that Anissa is as cute as a button, but she takes great care not to teach her that looking pretty is her top priority. "I want her to grow into her best self, and reach her full potential."

Although Anissa is only four, Lisa Fox Jackson of Iowa says that she is already showing aptitude in art, which she probably got from her mom. Lisa began drawing as a kid, too, and painting seriously when she was a teenager.

She majored in Visual Arts and Education at Naropa University in Boulder, Colorado. "I take every opportunity I get to tell Anissa about things women have accomplished ­– writers, doctors, athletes, politicians – so she knows that she can do anything." All indications are that Lisa Fox Jackson of Iowa has herself been an outstanding role model.
