About Leshia

I was an ESOL teacher from 2003 -2009. I taught 1st grade and ESOL at Bailey's elementary from 2003-2005 and I also taught at Woodley Hills elementary from 2008-2009. When I teach I used phonics, total physical response and whole language response in my teaching style. I also believe in instilling structure and practicing positive reinforcement as part of my teaching philosophy.

I taught language arts subjects such as reading. writing and social studies to 1st grade students right through to 5th graders. What I enjoyed most about teaching was forming personal relationships with my students while being their teacher. I got to know many of my students as individuals, some of whom who had challenging and complicated lives outside of school.

I was raised in Singapore and went to university in Australia, I moved to the US in the late 90s and went back to school to become an ESOL teacher. I am a native English speaker and Mandarin is my second language. I have two elementary aged children and would like to go back to teaching ESOL students. I enjoy travelling around the world and cooking. I'm a foodie who loves cuisine from all cultures, especially hot, spicy food. Meeting and interacting with people from diverse cultures is something I am very comfortable with and always an enjoyable learning experience.
