Mr. Tom Leach

Hi! My name is Tom Leach! I am from a small, but a very pretty city in the center of England called Lincoln. Originally, I studied political science at university however I soon realized that this was not the career path for me so I retrained to be an elementary school teacher and I have not looked back since. 

My first teaching position was in my hometown of Lincoln but after a few years I decided to teach internationally and I have since worked in British-curriculum schools in Prague and Mexico City. Now I am delighted to have the incredible opportunity to teach 5th Grade in North Carolina and join the FVES community! I believe that learning should be fun and engaging, and I try to bring music, new technology and real-world activities to the classroom as much as possible. 

Outside of school, my interests include soccer (or football as we call it in England), listening to music and playing guitar (I love rock music in particular) and learning Spanish. I also have a passion for food and I am excited to sample the local cuisines available in North Carolina. 

I cannot wait to get to know everybody at FVES and start teaching at this incredible school!
