2nd Grade Teacher Leanne McAtee

2nd Grade teacher

BS in Elementary Education with an endorsement in kindergarten from the University of Southern Indiana.

I’ve been at St. Mary’s for two years. My first year at St. Mary's I taught kindergarten.

Prior to joining the staff at St. Mary's I taught for seven years in Carthage in the Title I program and third grade.

I began my teaching career in Indiana teaching preschool for three years at my Catholic Church.

We moved to Arkansas in 2000.  There I taught religion classes and was the Director of Religious Education for seven years.

Teaching has always been a passion of mine.  My third grade teacher and my father, who is also a teacher, were my source of inspiration to become an educator.

I enjoy spending time with my family playing games and watching sports.  I love having our friends over for fun and dinner frequently.

My most recent pride and joy is our little girl that we adopted.  Who would have thought with two boys graduating high school and college we would start all over.

God is so good.  What a joy our little Kate is!
