About the Author


Jacqueline Samuel, born and raised in Jackson, Mississippi, is a middle school educator and researcher. Although her passion is in science education, Jacqueline never limits her interests strictly to the field of education.

Jacqueline acknowledges the combination of her father’s philosophy on life and her experiences as an undergraduate at Tougaloo College with opening her eyes to the issues of the people.  Tougaloo College, established on a former slave plantation, evolved into an institution that educated freed slaves. Tougaloo was widely considered the cradle of the Civil Rights Movements in Mississippi. Since that time, the college has encouraged its students to embody the rich history of Mississippi while helping them develop the tools needed to bring about change for the global community.

Jacqueline has given her time to many nonprofit organizations throughout Mississippi, most of which focuses of youth and community empowerment. As a middle school educator, Jacqueline teaches her students not only science but also not to accept limitations imposed on them by others.

Covering a diverse set of issues, Jacqueline is proud to use her Mississippi-influenced viewpoints to shed light to international, national, and local topics through this blog.
