Allison Hubbell Jackson- ICFE Student Intern

Allison Hubbell JacksonI am a graduate student at Wake Forest University completing my Master's degree in Clinical and Mental Health Counseling. In 2010, I received my Bachelor's Degree in Applied Learning and Development with an emphasis in Special Education from The University of Texas at Austin. I spend my days teaching Kindergarten at a local public school. I use mindfulness and trauma informed techniques each day to create a safe learning environment for my students. My students practice being risk takers with their learning. Kindergarten is a great place to make mistakes! When walking by my room, you will see yoga, breathing techniques, dancing, art, and singing integrated into each lesson. I model appropriate communication, and help give words to students who are learning to advocate for themselves. My work has led to a designation as a Texas TIA Recognized Educator. I was also honored as Teacher of the Year in 2020. 

 In 2018, I participated in the Breathe for Change 200-hour Wellness, SEL, and Yoga Teacher Training. This innovative training is what led to my shift from classroom teacher to becoming a counselor. I have found that my experience in the classroom has uniquely qualified me to work with children in a therapeutic setting. As a Graduate Student Intern at ICFE, I look forward to collaborating with children and their grownups to resolve issues within the context of their family. I believe that communication and self-regulation are life-long skills that can be taught and utilized from an early age. 

In my free time, I can be found creating chalk art, reading, baking, and dancing to “Baby Shark” with my toddler daughter.
