Leah Jackson Primary BIC Instructional Support

Hello there Pony family!!!


I was very excited to be joining the Lewisville Elementary staff and be apart of the BIC crew : - ). I am married to a wonderful man by the name of Dennis and we both work with special needs children. I graduated from Langston University with a Bachelor’s degree in Corrections. I have worked with different ranges of children from the correctional setting all the way down to 2 yrs old. I am the oldest of 3 and I have an amazing nephew, Yosiah, that has me wrapped around his little finger. I love to travel and I also am a Junior Advisor for the organization called Best Buddies.

Congratulations Mrs. Pugh
