Hello Wonderful Eagles!
My name is Leslie Akintounde and I am excited to be joining the Kindergarten team at Potowmack Elementary. I was a Kindergarten EL teacher at Sterling Elementary for the last five years. I have taught grades K, 1, 3, and 5 in the states of Louisiana and Virginia.
I am from a small town called Napoleonville in the state of Louisiana. I moved to the Northern Virginia area about 10 years ago, and have lived in Loudoun County for the last five years. I am a forever #whodatnation fan (GO SAINTS!)
I received my Bachelor's degree in Elementary Education from Southern University in Baton Rouge, LA and my Master's degree in Teaching English to Students of Other Languages from Grand Canyon University (online). As a life-long learner, I am currently pursing an Educational Specialist degree with Grand Canyon University (online).
When I am not at work, I enjoy spending time with my husband, two kids, friends, and watching movies.
I look forward to the growth and confidence our students will make this school year.
Thank you in advance for your support and time this school year!
