Hill-Jackson “Ready to Serve” in New Role


With a focus on further developing district-college partnerships, Dr. Valerie Hill-Jackson will serve as assistant dean of educator preparation and school partnerships.

Hill-Jackson, clinical professor in the Department of Teaching, Learning and Culture, says she is “ready to serve.”

“My role is to support my colleagues, the experts, by leveraging co-leadership as we transition to new mandates by the state of Texas. Using the College’s vision, mission, and strategic plan as our guide, the College’s educator preparation programs will find ways to be nimble and deliberate as we respond to policy and curricular demands – while placing the needs of students first.”

In addition to working with local school districts, Hill-Jackson will also focus on leading the 15 educator preparation programs in the college as well as provide guidance for the nearly 25 new secondary programs being developed through collaborations with colleges and departments across the university.

Hill-Jackson recently launched the Good Neighbor Partnerships, a framework created to address the college’s mission to positively engage local school districts in the state of Texas. College faculty have created coursework and professional development opportunities designed to support the professional growth of K-12 teachers/coaches, administrators and support staff.

Hill-Jackson joined the faculty in 2004 in the teacher education and multicultural/urban program areas. Her research interests include critical teacher education, transformative/servant leadership, service-learning and community education. She has also written a number of books and won several awards including a Distinguished Teaching Award from the Texas A&M Association of Former Students.
