My name is Jessica Ackerman and I am so happy to be a part of the Hart family! This is my fifth year as a reading interventionist in Lovejoy ISD. Before I came to Lovejoy I was a campus reading specialist in Richardson ISD. I have also taught first, second, third, and fourth grades. I received my BA in Psychology at UTD and my Master’s of Education in Reading from Texas A&M Commerce. I am currently working on becoming a Certified Academic Language Therapist. This will allow me to also work with students with dyslexia through the Take Flight program.
In addition to being a teacher, I am a proud mom of two boys. Isaac is in second grade and Asher is in kindergarten. They both love playing soccer so we spend a lot of our time at soccer practice and games.
I absolutely love what I do and I'm passionate about early literacy intervention. I enjoy watching my students not only grow as readers but develop a life long love of reading!
