Mrs. Jenny Akers
Welcome students and families!
I am greatly looking forward to a school year filled with fun, friendship, and learning here at Legend Springs. First grade is a time of tremendous advances in reading, writing, and math. Over the course of the upcoming school year, we have many exciting learning opportunities planned. You’ll be amazed at the growth your child will experience. I am here to support them through this wonderful journey.
I have a strong passion for teaching and have worked in a wide variety of elementary educational environments. There is nothing more exciting to me than guiding students on the path of lifelong learning.
