Tobi Jackson is a parent, educator, and administrator. A lifelong resident of East Fort Worth, she attended Eastern Hills Elementary, Meadowbrook Middle School, and proudly graduated in 1978 from Eastern Hills High School. This FWISD education prepared her for a successful transition into college, where she received a B.A. from the University of Texas at Arlington and an M.S. from the University of North Texas. Tobi and her husband Bruce have two children, Alexis and Zoie, ages 19 and 15. Alexis is a 2018 graduate of FWISD and a freshman at Texas Wesleyan University with plans to become a physician. Zoie is a freshman at the I.M. Terrell VPA/STEM Academy of FWISD.
Public service and volunteerism are core components of the Jackson Family. Tobi's husband Bruce served as General Contractor of HOPE FARM and has an extensive history with Habitat for Humanity, directing the Arlington Rangers Ballpark Build for nearly a decade. Their daughters are the youngest members of the City of Fort Worth Adopt a Park Program. As lifelong stewards of Eastern Hills Park, they initiated the adoption in 2012. This wasn't the girls' first foray into community service, as at the ages of four and eight, they worked to develop a program with Mission Arlington entitled, "Shoes to Share." This group fulfilled Mission Arlington founder, Tillie Burgin's, greatest need, shoes. The "Shoes to Share" program provided Mission Arlington with over 1,000 shoes collected within an eight month time period. The program is still unprecedented.
Her professional experience in education has been as both an administrator and faculty member in public, private, and corporate arenas. Coupled with over three decades of community service in Tarrant County, Tobi’s focus is firmly planted in sustainable, outcomes-driven efforts on behalf of Fort Worth youth.
Tobi’s area of interest is social/emotional growth, equitably delivered to ALL students—addressing on-time attendance, graduation rates, and reducing the number of over age/under credit students.
