Hello Wonderful Eagles!
My name is Leslie Akintounde and I am excited about starting year two at Potowmack Elementary. I was a Kindergarten EL teacher at Sterling Elementary for 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 over 10 years ago, and have lived in Loudoun County for the last six 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 pursuing an Educational Specialist degree at Grand Canyon University (online).
When I am not at work, I enjoy spending time with my husband, two kids, and friends, and watching movies.
I look forward to the growth and confidence our students will have this school year.
Thank you in advance for your support and time this school year!
