My name is Leslie Gearing. I am a Kindergarten teacher at Mamie Martin Elementary School. I majored in Elementary Education at William Carey University and couldn't wait to start teaching. I'm a caring, enthusiastic teacher with a strong commitment to student development and learning experience. I believe that teaching and learning should be a joyful experience. This year is going to be full of so many new adventures and learning experiences. The end of kindergarten is such a special time of year because I'm always thrilled about seeing the growth of my students. Thank you parents for allowing me to teach your amazing children and helping them to reach high expectations.
