Ms. Leatherwood's Class

Hey everyone!  I am excited to be apart of the Exceptional Education team here at Tellico Plains Elementary. 

Educational Background:

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.

Personal Background:

I am happily married to my best friend, Matt.  We have three amazing children (and a little girl on the way), plus 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).
