Hello Boyd Blackhawks,
My name is Anna Leiker and I am a 2nd Grade English Language Arts and Social Studies teacher at Boyd Elementary. This is my 17th year of teaching and my 13th here with Allen ISD. I have a BSBA from UT Dallas and earned my teaching certification from Collin College. I have a great love for reading and can't wait to share that love with your child!
A little about me: I'm not originally from Texas but have lived here long enough to be considered a Texan. Go Cowboys! :) My father was in the military so my family and I traveled all over the United States and Europe. I've been married to my wonderful husband for 26 years. We have two amazing children who have grown up in the blink of an eye. Adam is studying accounting at UNT and Brenna is completing a PA fellowship in Chicago. We have a precious dog named Samwise Gamgee. I love to read, cook, make a mess with home projects, go to yoga, tell stories, and travel with my family.
You're going to love this 2nd grade year! Your child is going to become more aware of how rewarding a life of reading can be. What's makes this year even better is that you will be a big part of helping them make these reading discoveries are you read with them daily.
I am looking forward to a wonderful year with your child.
