Our Principal

Hello! My name is Jenica Johnson and I am so proud to be the new principal at North Jackson Elementary School. It is truly an honor to serve in such a wonderful community and I look forward to many years together. I began my career

 in education 18 years ago teaching second grade at Meadowcreek Elementary in Gwinnett County. I taught second grade for 4 years and 3rd grade for three years before moving into school administration. I served as an assistant principal for 8 years in three schools within Gwinnett, most recently at McKendree Elementary in Lawrenceville. My family moved to Jackson County in 2014 which led me to seek employment there. I spent one year teaching at East Jackson Elementary before moving back into school administration as the principal at Lavonia Elementary in Franklin County. I intended to continue serving as the principal there, but the amazing opportunity to return to Jackson County presented itself and I seized the moment and was blessed to join the North Jackson family!

When I am not at school, you will most likely find me on the volleyball court cheering on one of my daughters as they play. I love volleyball and really enjoying watching my girls play. Beyond that, I enjoy reading, shopping and napping, not necessarily in that order! 

Relationships and connectivity are very important to me, so please do not hesitate to reach out if there is anything I can do to help you or your child. The best way to reach me is either by email at jljohnson@jcss.us or by phone at 706-693-2246. Please feel free to contact me to set up a meeting as needed. That allows me to designate time for us to chat and t

o avoid excessive interruptions. During the school day, I try to be out and about interacting with students and supporting teachers so it can be difficult to meet on the spot so an appointment time is preferred.

I hope that your child has an exceptional experience here at North Jackson and you feel their needs are met everyday to the best of our ability. I am sure we will make mistakes, but our intentions and hearts are all in for these kids and we strive to make sure they are loved and valued! I am so excited about this school year and I look forward to meeting you and getting to know your child. Here’s to an exciting and successful year!
