Bruce Jackson is looking forward to returning to the DCPS family where he held numerous roles during his career. Jackson served as the proud principal of Miner Elementary School, as a Mary Jane Patterson Fellow at Hart Middle School for School Year 2016-2017. Before taking part in the Patterson Fellowship, he worked as an assistant principal with DCPS at Cardozo Education Campus, a special education coordinator and special education teacher at MacFarland Middle School and Garfield Elementary School, and a special education aide at Walker-Jones Education Campus. Most recently, Jackson served as an Assistant Principal at a charter school in Florida where he helped lead the K-8 campus to its first ever grade of an “A”. In 2017, Jackson won the prestigious Rubenstein Award for Highly Effective Leadership as part of the DCPS Standing Ovation Awards. Jackson received his bachelor’s degree in political science from Westfield State University and his master’s degree in curriculum from American University. Jackson and his wife are excited to return to DC with their son to return to the DC community they both love.
