My name is Anna Leiker and I am proud to be in my seventh year of teaching here at Alvis C. Story Elementary. I have a BSBA from the University of Texas at Dallas and I earned my teaching certification from Collin College. I also have my certifications for ESL and Gifted and Talented.
I have lived in the Dallas area for 30 plus years so I think that is long enough to consider myself a Texan! I have been married to my wonderful husband, Alan, for 20 years. We have two fantastic children: Brenna age 18 and Adam age 15. Brenna is a freshman at the University of North Texas and is pursuing a Biology degree. Adam is a freshman at Lovejoy High School and enjoys lots of school activities like band and sports. I have to mention our fiesty Jack Russell Terrier, Rusty Meatball Leiker, because I often like to tell stories about him. My hobbies are reading, cooking, working out, and traveling with my family.
I am looking forward to a wonderful year with my third graders! This is a year when you are going to see amazing growth occur! It's exciting to see my students make connections with reading and writing; it really does bring me so much joy! As I like to tell my students, "It makes my tail wag!"
