Mrs. Berends

Hello, my name is Leslie Berends.  I have been teaching at Jasper High School since the first year the school opened in 1996.  Jasper is my home away from home.  I have taught a wide variety of subjects over the years, but I am currently the Team Leader of World History and I teach On-Level and Honors World History.  I was born and raised in Plano, and I graduated from Plano Senior High School.  I received my Bachelor's of Arts in both History and Political Science from Stephen F. Austin State University, and my Masters in Secondary Education and History from University of North Texas.  I have two children, Allie and Tony, that both attend Plano ISD schools.  I am also a dog mom to my three fur babies, Roxy, Rain, and Ruby.
