Ms. Leigh Ann Bailey

Vandora Springs Eagles!

I am SO excited to be a part of such a wonderful school family! More importantly, I’m THRILLED to be your teacher! I love watching my students grow and blossom through each school year! Watching their personalities develop and getting to know each one of my kids for exactly who they are, is such a blessing! I believe communication is key for your child to have the best year possible, so I welcome all of your questions, comments, and suggestions! Looking forward to a great year!

I studied Elementary Education at Campbell University, completed graduate work at UNC Charlotte and NC State, and have an add-on Academically Gifted Certification from ECU. I started teaching in 1989 and have been at VSE since 2018! I’ve taught several different grade levels, but my heart is with my 4th graders! I am blessed to be married to Todd. We have 5 children, 2 dogs, and 1 cat together. We have a very full and busy life!
