Welcome to First Grade


    Mrs. Leach’s All Stars





     I am beginning my 30th year of teaching. I started teaching second grade in the North East ISD. After seven years, I moved out to the SCUCISD and have been teaching first grade for 23 years. I love teaching your children. It is amazing to see their light bulbs go off and watch your child blossom. 
    In my classroom, I promote an atmosphere of safety, trust, and respect. I work hard to build a sense of community among my students, and I emphasize the idea of teamwork. I value cooperation and collaboration in my classroom. They are my second family. I believe that great things can happen when we work together!

      Lunch Money - Please make sure lunch money gets turned in with your child's first and last name.  It is also important to have their lunch number and my name somewhere on the envelope or baggie. 

     I am so excited to be your child's teacher this year. We are going to have a wonderful year of growing, learning and becoming one big family. Each day is full of adventure and fun as we learn to read, write and gain new understandings about our world.
