  17. Sandra, Natasha, Dylan and Madison

    Jackie, your passing has left such a hole in the hearts of this family. All three of my children have had the pleasure of you either teaching them or being there for them as a friendly face. I remember coming to help with the story sacks and listening to children read when I had just started my own teaching career. Your legacy will live on more than you will ever know.

  21. Mary Veitch

    A small lady with a big personality. So glad i got to know you. You were an amazing teacher and a wonderful person. You will never be forgotten.
    Sleep tight. Xx

  22. Stacey veitch & Peter rankin

    Miss Brown, i feel so privileged to have had the chance to get to know you, both as a teacher and a friend. You were the kind of teacher whose name will be remembered by pupils when they tell children about their memories of school days. A teacher who would make time for every pupil, parent and teacher, and a lady who put her whole heart into the job she was truly amazing at!! Thank you for our memories which we will hold in our heart forever. From stacey veitch & Peter Rankin X

    • The Harkers

      Thank you for all you did for Nell. She thrived in your care. I’m so glad I got to tell you this in person before Christmas. Im glad we shared a laugh about me being terrified of you at first. I really needn’t have been. You were not only supportive of my children but of me too. Always happy to chat about any concerns. Nell is adamant she’s going to be a teacher when she grows up, and I suspect that’s all down to you. She adored you. It hurts my heart to think of the children returning to Y2 on Monday, and you not being there, at the top of the steps to welcome them in. But I have no doubt in my mind that your colleagues will do you proud. You will be huge miss. Rest in peace Ms Brown. Love from Lucy, Iain, Chester and Nell x

  23. Anna Ridley and family

    It is so difficult to find the right words. Ms Brown was an incredible teacher, exceptional leader and wonderful person, whose love for the children and the school showed in all she did, and she will be missed enormously by all those whose lives she touched.

    Rest in peace, Ms Brown.

  24. Roxanne Haley

    Going to be such a huge miss to the school, a fantastic teacher, so glad my children had the pleasure of knowing her, my daughter who was currently in her year group has said school won’t be the same without her xxx

    • Michelle Haley-Stephenson

      I’ve known Jackie for numerous years now both as a teacher to my children who loved her and as a friend having gotten to know her more in my time as vice chair of the governing body, she was a funny, loving, witty person with an infectious smile that could light a room. Jackie you leave a legacy at South Hylton that will never be forgotten, rest easy lovely lady, you have earned your angel wings xx

  25. Vicky Wardle

    A truly wonderful teacher who will be sadly missed by all who knew her especially the children of south Hylton academy. I’m so sorry for your family’s loss may you rest in eternal peace x

  26. Janine Kurt Benjamin and Samuel

    Miss Brown you will be a huge loss to SHPA . After a guided tour from you I decided to remove Benjamin from the school he previously attended, and have never regretted that decision. As luck would have it you became his teacher for two years running and he improved from day one, I was so pleased Samuel also was taught by you if only for a short while . Sadly missed but never forgotten.

  27. Lynne Shawcross

    Miss Brown will be sadly missed & fondly remembered.

    But when the sun, in all his state, illumed the eastern skies, she passed through glory’s morning-gate,
    And walked in Paradise!

    I’m so proud to say Miss Brown was my teacher in Year 2 even if it was not for the full year due to lock down and missing a lot of school.

You gave me so much confidence, You were the best teacher I ever had and I am going to miss your smile and our conversations. I remember you getting me to sing in our class assembly on my own for the first time and I was so nervous but I did it and your words were “Wow!, The voice of an angel” that’s something I will never forget..R.I.P Miss Brown lots of love from Emily Benson xxxx
