Ms. Leatherwood's Class
Hey everyone! I am excited to be apart of the Exceptional Education team here at Tellico Plains Elementary.
After graduating from McMinn County High School, I completed my elementary education/middle grades degrees at Lee University, even teaching in Thailand for a semester. I taught at a public charter school in Idaho, where we specialized in reaching children with learning difficulties. When I moved back to Tennessee, I attended Tennessee Wesleyan to get my endorsement in Special Education. I have been teaching in Monroe County Schools since 2013. I am currently completing my Master's through Grand Canyon's online program and will graduate in November 2020.
I am happily married to my best friend, Matt. We have three amazing children and a spunky Pomeranian, Stitch. Outside of school, my husband and I serve at our church and have a heart for helping our community. We enjoy trips to Disney World, traveling in the summer, and trying new food. I love to play most sports and am a huge LSU fan (Geaux Tigers).
