Mrs. Katie Leonard

  • Hello! I am excited to be your child’s teacher this year! Second grade is such an enjoyable age and I treasure the experiences we have each new year! 
  • A little about me: I was born in Michigan and raised in Boise, Idaho attending several schools in the 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. Then, I completed my masters in Educational Leadership at Boise State in 2011. ​
  • I have been blessed with an amazing family. My husband, Kyle, and I have been married over 15 years. We have a son, Jaten, and a daughter, Jacelyn. Both of my kids go to elementary school in Westada. I love being in the outdoors especially playing soccer, kayaking, boating, skiing, camping, hiking, and just 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 work hard to provide the best education tailored to their individual needs. 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!
