Quinae Jackson

Head of Training + Learning
 Quinae Jackson

Quinae has worked in the education industry for more than 12 years. Quinae specializes in complex problem solving, implementing innovative ideas around instructional content, connecting social emotional learning with academic objectives, and facilitating dynamic discussions in the education space. She is passionate about creating learning journeys that allow individuals to discover the greatness within.

Before joining Wayfinder Quinae was Senior Brand Ambassador at Nearpod, an Ed-Tech company. At Nearpod Quinae used her classroom experiences to champion community building and enhance the ways educators around the world designed teaching and learning experiences.

Quinae grew up on the southside of Atlanta, Georgia and attributes her passion for education to her experiences of being bussed across town to school. Quinae understood that a student’s zip code had no business zipping up their exposure, potential, and opportunities. Quinae joined Teach for America and went on to spend seven years teaching at schools that faced “zipcode barriers”. From elementary school to middle school, she took her passion for transformative learning journeys and created powerful and impactful spaces.

Prior to her time at Nearpod, Quinae was an academic coach. In this role, she created protocols and procedures to foster a collaborative environment in individual classrooms, and worked with district and school personnel to increase student and staff retention and motivation. Quinae also spent time as an Educational Technology Specialist with Kennesaw State University, where she managed the implementation of personalized learning and instructional technology at multiple school sites.

Quinae is active in her community, including serving as the administrative coordinator at Silverleaf Baptist Church, a board member of the PTO at her daughter’s school and the STEAM committee chairperson with the National Council of Negro Women. She has earned many awards and accolades including Teacher of the Year. Quinae earned her Bachelor's Degree at Miles College, her experience attending a Historically Black College was monumental to her foundational belief that content without connection is of little service to the world. Quinae also earned her M.Ed. from The University of West Georgia.

“My purpose is to facilitate spaces that allow others to create and explore their values and gifts that will lead to a future of joy!”
