Miss Leslie Ackerman
In 2020-2021, I will begin my 21st year in education. Although, I did not begin my educational career in education, my BS in Child Development and Family Relationships from UT Austin sparked an interest in working with students in an educational setting. After graduating and teaching Pre-kindergaten for a year, I returned to UT Austin to pursue my teaching certificate. I have had classroom experience teaching the following grade levels, Kindergarten, 2nd grade, third grade, and 4th grade. After teaching in the classroom for seven year, I returned to Houston Baptist University to pursue a Masters in Curriculum and Education. Since graduating from HBU, I have had many opportunities to serve outside of the classroom as a EL Specialist, Reading/Social Studies Specialist, Assistant Principal, Director at Huntington Learning and Insrtuctional Coach.
I am blessed to have been at Patterson since the beginning. Besides my role as Literacy Intervetion Teacher, I also serve as the Champoin of Gifted Students (COGS) and a Mentor.
Your children are at the forefront of every educational decision that I make. My goal is to make every child successful in reading and writing. We celebrate their strengths and utilize them to promote progress in their academics.
