Welcome to HCAL High School DAEP!


My name is Mr. Jackson. I am a Hereford native and love our hometown. After graduating from Hereford High School I earned a bachelor degree in education from WTAMU. My career in education began as the ISS teacher at HHS for 3 years, I then taught at Deaf Smith County Youth Home for 22 years, and have been teaching at DAEP since 2014. My goal as a teacher is to help my students achieve their educational goals and that they benefit from my assistance and guidance. The greatest blessing as a teacher is the satisfaction I feel when I see former students being successful in life.



There are no secrets to success. It is the result of preparation, hard work, and learning from failure.
