Professional development is ongoing and numerous for all Malakoff ISD staff, in order to best meet the needs of our students.
I began teaching at Malakoff ISD in 2006, after spending my first three years teaching at RC Fisher in Athens. I worked within Special Education for 14 years, teaching Resource Math and coteaching with many other amazing math teachers, through inclusion. In 2016, I had an exciting change to sixth grade Math. I have truly loved teaching in every position I have been in.
I have been blessed to be married for 21 years to my wonderful husband, Shawn Leis. We have two amazing children. Kinsey Leis is a 2019 Malakoff ISD graduate. She now attends ETBU, where she is a Theater major and cheers for a new set of Tigers. Karger “Bear” Leis attends Malakoff Middle School. He enjoys spending his time playing baseball and basketball, through little league. The opportunities they have available to them make me thankful everyday that they are Malakoff Tigers.
