always knew how to make her smile, even if it meant putting her on the spot. Both Mary and Mark Jackson always had a good connection. Since she works at a different school now, she doesn't see a change in her relationship with Mark. They both see each other every day and communicate well.
Mary Jackson is a well-organized person. She stays on top of things and is very consistent when it comes to work. “I like my job because it keeps me busy and it makes me want to keep things looking nice and fresh so that people can eat better.”
Working in a cafeteria makes you very aware of always keeping your space looking clean. Maintaining a healthy social and school lifestyle has always been important to Jackson. She's friends with and respects most of the people she works with. One thing, and really the only thing that bothers her about her job, is when people are rude. “Everyone has their bad days, but being mean to someone else doesn't help your day get any better.” Jackson always tries to make the best out of her day, even if her day seems like it's going downhill. She has found that it makes the day go by so much easier.
Mary Jackson has fought through her biggest battles and continues every day for the sake of herself and the ones she loves. Her family will continue to push her to be the best she can be.
