Jackie Leggette

My name is Jackie Leggette and I am extremely excited to be heading back to classroom teaching 4th grade ELA this year. After spending 3 years as the Instructional Technology Specialist here at BHES, I am eager for the opportunity to work directly with students and families again. I have worked with all aged levels from 4k-5th grade, but 4th grade has always been my favorite age level to teach. I sincerely look forward to working with your family on growing as a community of learners and friends this year!

 My educational philosophy is centered around creating a positive and supportive community of empowered learners that fosters growth, community, kindness and independence.

My beliefs on teaching are short and simple....EVERYONE CAN GROW! Growth Mindset is a big part of my instructional philosophy and I truly beileve it can change lives. It is my belief that what students are exposed to and develop when they're younger can have an enormous impact on the rest of their lives.  My hope is to guide them on a path where they know they are cared for and feel safe in taking risks to extend their knowledge, skills and cognitive abilities.
