For the Chronicle 

Teaching young children was Betty Jackson’s passion.  She taught school for 41 years before retiring in 2003 from Crystal River Primary School.

“I taught first grade longer than any other grade, for 21 years, at CRPS,” she said.  She also taught the Title 1 Reading Lab for all grades during the latter part of her career there.
