About the Teacher

About the Teacher...

My name is Leigh Ann Helams.  This is my ninth year of teaching including eight years of kindergarten and one year of pre-kindergarten.  This is my third year at Crosley.  I live in West Monroe with my husband, daughter, and pets.  I graduated with a degree in Early Childhood Education from ULM in 2002.  I enjoy plants, animals, movies, shopping, and children!

My goal is to make kindergarten a great experience so each child develops a love for school and learning.  I love to see the progress the children make during their kindergarten year--from learning to make friends, to reading books in the spring.  I try to demonstate and teach respect for others and responsibilty for actions.  I strive to help each child complete kindergarten with the social and academic skills needed to be a successul leaner.  With school and parent teamwork, your child can soar this year! 

Please feel free to contact me during the school year with any questions or concerns regarding your child.  You can reach me by school phone 325-3634 or e-mail helams@opsb.net.

I look forward to getting to know your child...let's have a GREAT year!  Smile
