Mrs. Jessica Kennedy

​I am Jessica Kennedy, and this is my third year teaching physical education at Leeds Elementary School. I grew up in Odenville, Alabama, and attended college at The University of Alabama, where I studied communications and English literature. I am currently a graduate student at the University of West Alabama and will receive my M.Ed this year.

When I am not teaching PE, I enjoy time with my husband and three children: Jeremiah (7th grade at LMS), Lilly (4th grade at LES), and Nash (preschool). I also have two awesome (grown) stepsons: Evan and Ethan. Staying physically active makes me happy, and I love the outdoors! My family and I enjoy snow skiing out West in the winter and time at the lake during the summer. And of course, I love beach getaways whenever possible.

Although teaching was not my first career, it is my favorite! I am blessed to work in a fantastic school system with lots of wonderful people, especially all my sweet LES kiddos!
