Mrs. Yajaira Owens

Hello Trojans,

My name is Yajaira Owens and it is my pleasure to be an Assistant Principal at Jackson Middle School. I have lived in NC for the past twenty two years, and I currently live with my husband and two sons in Asheboro, NC. I attended High Point University, where I earned a B.S. in Psychology. Later, I attended North Carolina A&T and earned my Masters in Counseling. After nine years of counseling, I was selected to participate in the Triad Piedmont Leadership Academy (PTLA) where I earned my administrative license.

Prior to coming to Jackson Middle, I worked as an Assistant Principal at the elementary, middle and high school level for Asheboro City Schools. I love guiding and advocating for middle schoolers as they grow academically, socially, and physically over three short years in middle school. I believe all students need opportunities to be successful, will achieve given a supportive learning environment, and need to have fun each day at school. 

I look forward to bringing my experience to Jackson Middle. I am excited to work with the students, staff, parents and the amazing community, who make Jackson a great school. Please feel free to contact me at (336)294-7350 or email me at
