Assistant Teacher

My name is Jasmine. I graduated from Rouse High School in 2019 where I was a cheerleader. When I was younger, I always wanted to be a teacher because my pre-k and Elementary school teachers were always the best and had such a big impact on my life. I’m super excited to start on this journey with LeafSpring School.

What inspires me: My mom is my biggest inspiration, because from a very young age, I remember her always pushing herself to be a better person and mother.
