About Leigh

Education is my passion. After spending 3 years as an Adjunct Lecturer at the State University of New York at Albany, I realized I wanted to make a difference in primary education, so I moved down to New York City to be a 2009 corps member of Teach for America. Immediately after the intensive training with TFA, I began my career as a Special Education teacher in Corona, Queens at a middle school, I.S. 61. After three years working for that school, I relocated up to Troy, NY in order to teach 7th Grade Writing at Troy Prep, a middle school in the Uncommon School Network. I simultaneously began adjuncting at SUNY Albany once again, and spent the last year teaching undergraduate students how to teach. I recently relocated to Dolgeville, NY, and am hoping to help students in this area.

I've had experience teaching young adults and teenagers, and am a certified teacher in elementary education. I'm proficient in literature, writing, composition, grammar, and even German (having taken it throughout my own middle school, high school, undergraduate, and graduate academic careers).
