Hi! My name is Colleen Ackerson and this will be my 12th year teaching in the Blue Springs School District. I have taught all 12 years here at James Walker Elementary! My first year of teaching I taught 3rd grade and then moved to 2nd grade where I have taught for the past 11 years.
I am a Blue Springs girl born and raised where I attended all Blue Springs schools (K-12) before graduating from Blue Springs South High School in 2002. I continued my education and graduated with a Elementary and Early Childhood Education degree from Missouri State University in 2007. I then went on to receive my Masters degree from Webster University in 2008.
I have an amazing family which includes my husband, Drew, and our two daughters, Amelia and Adley. Drew is also a teacher and teaches 6th grade Social Studies in the Blue Springs School district at Moreland Ridge Middle School. Our first daughter, Amelia, is turning 8 shortly and is currently in 2nd grade. Our second daughter, Adley, is 3 and is currently enjoying growing and learning new things every single day!
I love teaching 2nd grade and I am excited to enjoy this year with all your children! :)
