She's there to support students who are dealing with difficult situations in the classroom.
Clarice Jackson founded the Voice Advocacy Center in Omaha when she saw the need for students with special education needs and learning issues in their schools.
Jackson spends time with parents for a better understanding of each student's situation and she makes sure that each student receives the extra help that is needed.
"We all as parents sometimes think it's our fault when our children are failing," she explained in an interview with WOWT 6 News.
"But to see a parents disposition change from that of one of self inflicting, and to the child progressing and going on and making progress in school, and behavior changing as well and the teachers and the parents being able to communicate effectively with each other, those are the rewards that get me up everyday."
Jackson's vision to help students dates back in 1999 when she started working with a young student who was behind in school because of dyslexia
"And from there I found out that her mother was not in her life and she lived with her grandmother. So I began to advocate on her behalf, and through that I became her legal guardian, she moved in with me at the age of nine, I became her mother and she is now 22."
Jackson soon found other students and parents in need of an advocate. She later founded the Voice Advocacy Center located at 105 N. 31st Ave.
"What I love about my job is the fact that children's education changes and so does their self esteem."
