Columbus Elementary School name is Jackie Arthur. As many of you know...I have been teaching at CES for 28 years. In those past 28 years, I have had many different roles...usually dealing with reading instruction. I currently teach 5th grade ELA and love it!!! If you don't already know me, then I will give you my background information. I was born and raised in Columbus. I graduated from CHS in 1979. I attended Wharton Co. Jr. College and received my associates degree. I then traveled to Southwest Texas State University and received my degree in education. I am married to Chris Arthur and we have one son, Ryan who is an 8th grader at  CJHS. I LOVE teaching....there is nothing else in this world I would rather do...except maybe be a chef!!!
