My name is Diane Leggett, Structured Instruction Teacher (SI). I am so excited about this school year! I have been teaching special education since 1994 and am looking forward to teaching the SI class as I go into my 25th year of teaching! I have been with Waxahachie ISD for 15 years and have been at Shackelford as the Resource/Content Mastery/Inclusion/Coteacher for 13 years. This year, I am proud to be able to lead the Structured Instruction classroom and help our students that are in need of additional support and services to be successful academically and socially at school!
I have been married to my high school sweetheart, Jerry Leggett, Science teacher at Finley Junior High School, for 36 years. We have two sons, Jacob Leggett, age 31 and Jordan Leggett, age 18. Jacob lives in Austin, Texas and is the Team Lead and Technical Account Manager at Hostway Services, Inc. Jordan lives at home and is busy on his computer, learning new skills everyday!
As the mom of a child on the autism spectrum, I am looking forward to working with my students and providing them with the tools that they need to be successful at school in the general education classroom and in all transitional areas, along with providing social skills lessons that are hands on, fun, and can be applied to everyday life. I am also excited to work with my student's parents as a team and helping them through this incredible journey. I look forward to collaborating with them and to create supports that they need for their child to be successful as they transition between home and school.
