Mrs. Katie Leonard
Hello! I am excited to be your childs teacher this year! First grade is such an enjoyable age and I treasure the experiences I have each new school year!
A little about me: I was born in Michigan and raised in Boise, Idaho attending several schools in Westada School District. I graduated from Boise State University in 2006 with a bachelors in Early Childhood/Early Childhood Special Education and started teaching for the district in 2007. I then completed my masters in Educational Leadership at Boise State in 2011.
I have been blessed with an amazing family. I have been married over ten years to my husband, Kyle. We have a son, Jaten, and a daughter, Jacelyn, who both go to school here. I love being in the outdoors especially playing soccer, kayaking, boating, skiing, and spending time with my family.
It is extremely important to me that you know I have your child’s best interest at heart. I will do my very best to provide them the best education that I can. I ask that you please communicate with me openly about your worries, concerns, and reasons for celebrating your child’s growth. I promise that I will only ask you to work at home with your child on things that are meaningful. I cherish family time and believe that children need time after school to play, be outside, and strengthen family relationships
Thank you for sharing your sons and daughters with me. I know we will have an amazing school year!
