All About Mrs. Eckert

    Mrs. Eckert reads a Pigeon


 I am so excited to be a part of  the Leon Springs Elementary Staff!  This is my 7th year as a librarian here and I feel so lucky to work in such a wonderful school!  Previously, I was in Leander ISD in north Austin where I taught 3rd grade for four years and spent two years as an Instructional Technology Facilitator.     

I graduated from Clark High School here in NISD in 1997, and then went on to earn a Bachelors and Masters degree in Elementary Education from Texas State University (or, as I knew it, Southwest Texas!).  I completed a Masters degree in Library and Information Science from UT Austin in 2007.  I am married to the amazing David Eckert, a band director at New Braunfels High School.

Many exciting things will be happening in the library this year.  Please check this page frequently to find out what's happening at the LSE Library!
