Degrees and Certifications:
Leslie Campbell - Special Education
I was lucky enough to grow up in Wimberley and I graduated from Wimberley High School. I earned my Bachelor's degree in Social Work from Texas State University in 2002. I then worked with the Department of Family and Protective Services as a Case Worker and Preparation for Adult Living Coordinator up until 2016. Seeing many of the children and youth struggle through their education while in the foster care system inspired me to become an educator to assist children such as them in their education and hopefully still be an advocate for them on the other side.
I returned to Wimberley at the end of 2016 to be closer to family. This gave me the opportunity to return to school for my education certification while I was working as a Special Education Aide at Jacob's Well Elementary during the 2017-20018 school year.
This is my first year teaching as the Special Education Focus teacher (and WYSA basketball coach, Go Blue Thinder!) and it has been absolutely amazing. I am so blessed to be back in Wimberely and a part of the JWE and WISD family.
