Hello and welcome to middle school where a whole new world of adventure awaits! My name is Leisa Westbrook, but I truly prefer to be called Mrs. W. I am here to help every one of you dream big and strive to achieve your academic goals. I have over four years experience working within Fort Huachuca Accommodation School District. I am delighted to be teaching sixth grade Social Studies. The ancient world is full of intriguing stories, and I look forward to hearing some of your stories as many of you may have visited some of the very sites we will be learning about together.
I am from Texas. My family and I now call Arizona home. I am a veteran of the US Army and have a passionate heart to serve our military families.
While growing up in Texas, prior to serving in the military, I completed a Bachelor of Arts in Psychology from the University of Houston. I recently graduated from Grand Canyon University earning a Masters In Elementary Education. I hold endorsements in Early Childhood Education, General Science, and Social Studies. I am also CPR and AED certified.
Outside of the classroom, I enjoy competitive long-distance running and traveling. My husband, Justin, and I have been married for more than fourteen years. Together we lead a scouting program to promote youth activities in the great outdoors and we proudly parent our three spectacular children.
