On November 13th back in the early 1970ís, a "scientist" was born.
Welcome to the Autobiography of Sherry Ann Jackson
I attended Dillard University in New Orleans where I received a Bachelorís of Science degree. Immediately following graduation ceremonies, I worked as a Student Research Assistant at the University of Florida at Gainesville. I was so exited about finding a drug to treat Alzheimerís disease. I later found my job was temporary, had no benefits, and I was homesick. I returned home to work as a Substitute Teacher and during that time I looked for a job in research. After two months, I received a job as a Research Associate in the Physiology Department of the Biomedical Research Institute at LSU Medical Center. Two years of grueling research in Adult Respiratory Distress Syndrome (ARDS) caused my longing to interact with a variety of people on a more regular basis. Remembering the smiling faces and enthusiastic behavior of middle school students, I took a Science Teacher position at Oak Terrace Alternative School.
