Hi! I'm Leana and I am a Second Grade/Special Education teacher.  I've also taught first grade for 8 years, and I've worked with general ed. students, ESL students, and with Special education students.
My other information describes my degrees so I will focus on other things here. I am the Associate Counselor for KDP- Delta Rho Chapter at Kean University. I've been serving on the executive board for Delta Rho for a while, since I was inducted in 2007! I enjoy reading, traveling, (especially to Florida!) and exercising. I love taking all sorts of classes at the gym including boxing, body pump, Pilates, yoga and more. I also enjoy running, since I love the outdoors and summer. I have been a dancer since age 3, and have had many wonderful performing opportunities with my dance studio. I still help out with their annual performances of the Nutcracker and the end of the year Collage Show. I was a competitive figure skater for nine years, and have skated in places such as Lake Placid NY, Chelsea Piers NYC, and more. I live in NJ with my wonderful Italian family, where Sunday dinner is still special, love cleaning, and I help out with the 25:35 ministry at my church, as my faith is important to me. I also consider myself part Floridian since my father lives there and I travel there frequently to visit. I am a Disney fan... to the point where many say I should work there and start my own school there! I am looking forward to continuing using KDP as a means of resources and networking with other professionals from all over!
