Mrs. Leonard

Wow!  This will be my 23rd year teaching at College Wood!  Am I really that old...I mean, experienced?  I graduated from Ball State University where I received a BA in Elementary Education.  I also hold a Master’s degree in Special Education & Learning Disabilities from I.U.  I have either taught fourth or fifth grade; I love their maturity and enjoy the curriculum at this level. 

I am married and have been blessed with three children.  Our 14 1/2 year old daughter, Hannah, is entering her first year at the high school and has long surpassed me in height.  Our son, Wyatt, is 10 1/2 years old and full of energy, curiosity, and personality.  He is also a 5th grader this year at CW!  Our second daughter, Stella, will be 7 this September and a 1st grader here.  My husband, Tom, is an avid outdoorsman and keeps himself busy as a Warranty Manager for Drees Homes.  Our family is completed by Waylon, our "slightly" active English Pointer. 

When I'm not in the classroom, I look forward to Starbuck's coffee, Handel's ice-cream, eating out, listening and singing along to music, exercising in Zumba class and running, reading, landscaping, and watching the birds in my backyard (especially the beautiful Cardinals!)

I am very passionate about my profession and put my heart and a little bit of humor into each day.  I am hopeful that your child will enjoy FIFTH grade as a confident individual who believes that she/he is capable, needed, and cared for.  Thank you for sharing your child with me.
