Leslie MacDonald is proud to be the educator at The Learning Tree Preschool – Sherwood Park. She has always been an Alberta girl, earning her Bachelor of Education degree at the University of Alberta. After graduating, she taught the primary grades in Edmonton.
After 12 years of teaching (during which she got married), Leslie was eager to take on a new and equally challenging job: full-time mom to her first child, Liam. Five years later, her family grew by 2 with the birth of twin boy. It was during her first son’s participation in various preschool programs that her desire to become a preschool educator was born.
Leslie saw first-hand how stimulating environments, caring educators, and engaging activities sparked curiosity and learning in her young boys. Plus, they always seemed to be having so much fun! Once her own boys were well-settled into their school programs, Leslie decided to follow a new path of teaching preschool. She loves that every class is a new and exciting learning opportunity and that the children ALWAYS make her laugh! When she’s not planning for preschool, Leslie loves to garden, cook, read, travel and scour thrift shops for bargains.
