Reana LeBlanc

This is my first year at LPS, and I'm very grateful for a new chapter. I graduated from Texas Women's University. I grew up in Frisco, and I'm a Frisco High alumni. I have always had a love for physical education and personal fitness. I enjoy building relationships and getting to know each student's interest in physical education and other leisure activities. I'm really excited to help encourage the young minds here at LPS to try and find what brings them joy by having an active lifestyle. My goal is to engage with each student actively and inspire them to try new things that they may not even consider pursuing.

I love being active and have worked in the fitness industry and I am so excited to be a part of helping children love physical activity. GO LIONS!
