My name is Leslie Bennett and I teach third grade here at Bridge Point Elementary. I have a Bachelor's degree in education and an ESL certification from the University of South Florida. This will be my third year teaching at BPE.
I was born and raised just minutes from the beach in Venice, Florida. I moved to Austin with my cousin five years ago and absolutely love it here! I am still having so much fun exploring this amazing city.
I met my husband, Cameron, just two weeks after I moved here. We will be celebrating our third year of marriage at the end of September! Cam was born and raised in Austin, and is a Westlake graduate.
At the end of May, we welcomed a baby boy. His name is Hayden and we are enjoying every minute with him. He loves being out of the house, going on walks, and taking baths.
Being from Florida, I naturally love the beach and doing any activities that involve water! My husband and I also enjoy cooking, trying out new restaurants in Austin, and spending time with our friends and family. We love to travel, especially to places we've never been before! We are always planning our next trip :).
I look forward to getting to know both you and your child. We are going to have a fantastic year!
