My name is Virgil Jackson, some people call me Action. I'm originally from Birmingham, Alabama, but I've lived in Valdosta for almost 17 years. I am a junior at Valdosta State University. I am in the Early Childhood Education Department where I also serve as a peer advisor. I have been a substitute teacher in for Valdosta City Schools for four years, which has given me a great amount of excitement of becoming a teacher. I have a great passion in working with children. I have plans of furthering my education after graduation.


I love sports, especially football and basketball. While growing up in Birmingham I became a devoted Alabama Crimson Tide fan. I hope to one day attend an Alabama football game. I also love watching movies and wrestling. I particularly love comedy and action films.

I served 10 years in the United States Air Force, which included a year in Italy, and two years in Germany.  I have also had short stays in great cities like San Antonio and Denver while serving. Since arriving in Valdosta, I have visited such cities as Miami, Dallas, Orlando, and New Orleans.


There are a couple of websites for teachers that I love to visit. One is abcteach. This website is a teacher's playground for tools, worksheets, clip art, and research at every grade level.  The other is Teacher Planet, which provides great sources and ideals for holidays.
