Title 1 Teachers

Donna Cox

    Mrs. Cox is the Title I reading teacher at Luther Porter Jackson Middle School. She moved to Surry in 1980 and cannot imagine living elsewhere.  She began teaching at L. P. Jackson twenty years ago, after graduating from Christopher Newport University. In 2012, she received her master’s degree as a Reading Specialist from Liberty University.
