Mrs. Jessica Jurczak

This is my eighth year in Special Education and I’m so excited to kick off my first year at Leadership Prep! I know it’s going to be an amazing year! I live here in Frisco with my husband, Jim, our son, Jonah, and our Yellow Labrador Retriever, Jasper.

In my free time I enjoy nature walks, Yin yoga, working out, camping, beaching, reading, writing, listening to music and podcasts, and spending time with family and friends.

 I am passionate about helping students reach their greatest potential. As an educator, I place a strong emphasis on the individuality of each student and I believe it is essential to cater to the unique needs of the students in order to promote the most favorable learning, social-emotional, and behavioral outcomes. I appreciate the students’ innate drive to learn and view my role as one that fosters that curiosity, energy, and will to understand.

 “Helping others to flourish is to achieve one’s own self-actualization.”

Mrs. Breanne Main

Hello! My name is Breanne Main and I am a Middle School/Highschool Special Education Teacher and Case Manager here at Leadership Prep Academy. This is my 8th year of teaching and 4th here at LPS. I am so excited to be back at Leadership Prep where we truly operate as a family.

I attended Sonoma State University, CA and earned my Bachelor’s degree in English Lit from Cal State University Fullerton, CA. I am a proud wife to my husband Jason and 4 amazing kiddos call me Mommy! When I’m not teaching or hustling my children to sporting events/practices, we love being outdoors, on the lake, swimming and going on adventures as a family!

Special Education is my passion and watching my students reach for their full potential and succeed is one of the many reasons why I love and am blessed to do what I do.

Hello, my name is Missy Savell and I am beyond blessed to work at Leadership Prep where it feels like “home”.  For the past 3 years I have had the privilege of working along-side motivated students who are encouraged in their learning by a gifted and very kind staff.  My teaching career spans over 25 years and through almost every grade level either as a general education teacher, a gifted facilitator, or as a special education teacher.  This year will be my 3rd year at LPS in the role of a special education teacher.  In my spare time I enjoy crafting, journaling and spending my vacation time with my grown son who lives in Florida.
