My name is Leslie Bennett and I teach fifth grade here at Bridge Point Elementary. I have taught third grade the past three years. I am looking forward to working with your child in fifth grade this year! I have a Bachelor's degree in education and an ESL certification from the University of South Florida. This will be my fourth year teaching at BPE.
I was born and raised just minutes from the beach in Venice, Florida. I moved to Austin with my cousin six 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 fourth year of marriage at the end of September. Cam was born and raised in Austin, and is a Westlake graduate.
We have a one-year-old son named Hayden. He loves being out of the house, going on walks, playing, and being in the water. We love watching him explore and learn new things each day!
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!
