    Tammy Jerkins
         I am proud to say I graduated as the valedictorian of the Class of 1977 of Leesburg High School.  I am a true fan of the Fighting Yellow Jackets!  I do believe that academics should come first in a student's educational experience, but I also support extra-curricular activities.  I enjoyed being a cheerleader, swim team manager, class officer, student government officer, club member, and yearbook editor at LHS.  I think that a well-rounded student is the best way to enjoy and excel in high school. 

         I graduated with high honors from Lipscomb University, a small Christian college in Nashville, Tennessee with my B.A. in Secondary Education of Mathematics in 1981.  While there I also served in student government, Civitan, and my social club Pi Delta.  
        I then taught for several years in Atlanta at Southwest Dekalb and Redan high schools.  At that time I also coached the cheerleaders.  After that, I enjoyed being a stay-at-home mom before coming to LHS in January, 2004.  In 2017, I was named the Lake County Teacher of the Year and the 2018 Florida Teacher of the Year.  Currently, I serve as the math department chairperson and help with Mu Alpha Theta. 
        I also serve as the Pre-School Coordinator at my church, S.14th St. Church of Christ and teach many young children's classes.  I love my church family, but my pride and joy is my own family!  I have an incredible husband, four amazing children, a new son-in-law, and a fun black lab.
