    My sweet nieces!


    Welcome to Miss Ackles's page! 

    My name is Jennifer Ackles and I am excited to be your child's teacher and case manager this year.  This will be a year like none other, but we are all here for support as we navigate so many new things.  I teach students in Kindergarten, First, Second, Third and Fourth grade both in my classroom and alonside their teachers.  This year, I will be starting the school year as an At Home Learning teacher which will allow me to teach students learning from home using technology.  I am truly looking forward to when I can greet my students with warm hugs and high fives, but until then please know that behind the screen there is much love shining through for your child. 

    A little about myself: 

    This is my third year to be an Allen Eagle where I get to work with amazing students, families, and staff!  I am a graduate of Baylor University where I received my degree in elementary education with a specialization in special education.  This is my seventeenth year of teaching as a public educator.  The majority of my teaching career has taken place in Central Texas including three years as an educational therapist and clinic director in a private clinic for students with learning differences.  I was born and raised in the Chicagoland area and have taught in Texas, California, and Kansas.  I love enjoying the beauty of the outdoors and travel.  My passion is facilitating excellence in learning for my students to reach their highest potential.  I am excited to see your Eagles soar this year with you!
