Ms. Tiffany Ackerman
Hello, my name is Tiffany Ackerman! I am the new 4th grade teacher at Wood Elementary, and very excited to get started with the 2016-2017 school year!
Here is a little about myself! I just moved to Waynesville from St. Louis this summer. Growing up, I moved around because my father was Active Duty Air Force for over 25 years. I was born in Lehighton, Pennsylvania and lived in Turkey, Washington D.C., Belgium, South Carolina, England, Illinois and Missouri. Moving around so much, I am very close to my family. I have one younger sister named Tori. I graduated high school from Mascoutah, Illinois and then went to college at Southeast Missouri State in Cape Girardeau. In college, I was a Resident Assistant and was active in Habitat for Humanity. In 2013, I graduated summa cum laude with my degree in Elementary Education with a concentration in science. This is when I moved to St. Louis for my first job teaching 2nd grade at Gateway Science Academy South. In addition to teaching and being a science nerd, I also love sports! I coached both soccer and T-ball, and really enjoy both playing and watching sports.
Some of my Favorites:
Baseball: Philadelphia Phillies
Football: Pittsburgh Steelers
Hockey: Philidephia Flyers
Drink: Any kind of tea, both hot and cold!
Sport: Baseball (I have coached T-Ball the last 3 years!)
Color: lime green, yellow
Hobbies: Crafts (especially for my sister's wedding!), reading, games (board and card games)
I am really looking forward to my first year teaching 4th grade at Wood Elementary here at Fort Leonard Wood!
