Jackie Yarka
Kentucky Curriculum Specialist
I taught in the classroom from 1st grade to college for 17 years. I graduated from the National Louis University with my Bachelor of Arts in Education, and then received my Masters of Education in Math at Saint Xavier University. In addition to my love of working with teachers and students, I love spending time with my family and being a mother to our 4 children. I am constantly outdoors running, biking, or swimming, to prepare for my next Ironman event. If I am not training, I am cheering on my children at their sporting events!
