Mrs. Melissa Leshley

Hello friends! My name is Mrs. Leshley. I am so happy to be teaching First Grade at Jefferson Road Elementary.

Here is a little bit about me:

I grew up in Angelica, NY. My family has a big farm where we make yummy maple syrup. I became a teacher by studying at SUNY Geneseo and St John Fisher College. I taught for eleven years in the city of Rochester.

I live with my husband, Matt, our little girls, Nora and Allison, and our dog, Jack. I love to be outside, read books, and play with my family. Teaching is my number one passion!
