My name is Mrs. La’Neeka M. Gilbert-Jackson. I am the daughter of Willie L. Gilbert and Betty Reese-Gilbert. I have a younger sister named La’Alishia. I have been married to my loving husband, Micheal Jackson, for over 16 years. We have 2 handsome sons, Omri and Asa Jackson. My boys definitely keep me young. This teacher is a true Atlanta Falcon fanatic. My family enjoys watching and playing football. I also love marching bands! When I am between the band, football, basketball practice, Boy Scouts, and church events, I enjoy listening to music while reading a good book or adding my own special touch to a new dish.
I am a native Georgian and a product of Atlanta Public Schools. I attended Joseph W. Humphries Elementary, Crawford W. Long Middle, and Walter F. George/South Atlanta High School. I had some of the best teachers ever! I also graduated from Georgia State University with a degree in Early Childhood Education, where I met Baba Asa Hilliard. My mentor and professor, Dr. Asa Hilliard taught me that we must rise above critical unconsciousness, and connect our great history to our future. It is because of him that I truly understand that black is beautiful and that my ancestry and history are just as important as my future.
I am currently a 3rd-grade teacher at William M. Boyd Elementary School. I have been teaching for 16 + years, all within the Atlanta Public School System. During my years as an educator, I have worked with a number of students from Pre-Kindergarten through 5th grade, including those that are gifted, as well as those in small inter-intervention groups. I also encourage all students to be creative with technology.
When it comes to my students, honestly, I have a heart for young, black males, as I am raising 2 of my own. My faith keeps me grounded because I am truly blessed and highly favored.

I, Keione Vance, have been working with children for six years. Education is very important to me. I believe the purpose of education is to prepare children for today’s society. To be successful in the future, an individual must be educated. Teaching gives children the ability to obtain information and apply the knowledge that has been taught to them in their everyday life. In the future, being educated can avoid embarrassment and low self-esteem. I look forward to working with your child and enhancing the knowledge that he/she already possesses. Please feel free to contact me at your convenience. Thank You!!!!
