Primary Two Teacher
“I have always loved working with children, but I have found a special joy in being able to watch their personalities and individual curiosities develop, and, as I have discovered, in figuring out the best way to answer all the fascinating questions their curiosities elicit.”
Leslie joined the MSGH community in 2009, two months after she graduated college, and began working in our Main Office as an administrative coordinator. Quickly identified as a natural with children, she began substituting and returned to MSGH the following year as an Assistant in the Primary One classroom. In 2013, she began training at the Montessori Institute of San Diego and in 2015, received her AMI Primary diploma.
Prior to joining MSGH, Leslie focused on her academic studies and held positions in research relating to child speech acquisition. She holds in BA in Linguistics and Psychology from the University of Connecticut, and has an extensive background in language study. She has studied Spanish, French and Mandarin Chinese, and continues to be interested in all languages.
In her spare time, she enjoys spending time with her husband, reading, listening to music, and attending the theater.
