Mrs. Leonard

I am entering my 3rd year as a Pre-K Instructional Assistant at YMES.  I proudly completed SEFEL (Social and Emotional Foundations for Early Learning) training through WCPSS.  SEFEL promotes the social and emotional development and school readiness of young children from birth through age 8. My favorite center in the classroom is science but I do love to have an imaginary cup of  tea with my students in dramatic play.  My hobbies are reading, lifting weights and watching sports.  I love sports so much that I traveled to Spain to watch Real Madrid play in the Champions League.  I have two boys, one at Appalachian University studying History and the other is in high school and rows crew for Triangle Rowing Club.  I also have two cats, Lucky and Tiger.  My favorite movie is The Goonies and my favorite book is Boys In The Boat.  My background includes a B.A in Sociology from Catawba College and a Master of Social Work from Howard University.  May favorite quote that can be used in many of life’s situations is: “you’re gonna need a bigger boat”.
