The Passing of A Guard

A guard is a protector
who stands between trouble
and you

The passing of a guard
exposes you to trials
and tribulations

In special ed.
the guards are
the teachers and para-pros
who gives comfort and
guidance to their clients

The clients do not
do well with change
in anything

Each guard
who works in
special ed.
brings nuance
of spirit to all
and when they
are no longer there
a change occurs
--sadness, uneasiness,
disbelief, and emptiness

So, it is with the unexpected passing
of a guard in special ed.
at Hillsboro High--
Mr. Hugh Jackson--
that change has come
and its effect will be felt
for times to come

Rest now, Mr. Jackson
your memory will live on

Mr. Jackson was such a kind-hearted and loving man, who took care of his students. It was a privilege to work with him. I will miss his smiling face on Hillsboro's campus. Sending prayers for the family.

We are forever grateful for the seven years that Halle has had with Mr. Jackson as her school aide. She has been fortunate to have someone who showed so much care for her well-being during the day, and we will remember him fondly.
