Jessica Leavitt, email@example.com, 817-814-5015
Mrs. Jessica Leavitt has been an educator in FWISD for more than 16 years. It is thanks to her high school counselor, who noticed her Algebra 1 math grades were low and taught her the importance of good foundational math skills, that she retook Algebra 1 and met Ms. Hall, the teacher who inspired her to pursue a degree in education. Mrs. Leavitt acquired the beginning credits towards her degree at Tarrant County College and then transferred to Texas Christian University (TCU) to complete her Bachelor of Science in Middle School Mathematics Education. J.P. Elder MS, Wedgwood 6th, and McLean MS were all places she called home while teaching students about 6th through 8th grade mathematics for ten years. Her different leadership experiences at each school led her to obtain her master's in educational leadership from TCU. Mrs. Leavitt then returned to McLean MS as an Assistant Principal where she lead and served in the Paschal pyramid for four years. She is excited to continue to serve the Panther nation as an assistant principal at Paschal, with duties including 11th grade discipline, campus testing, and Dean of Instruction for the CTE department.
