• Mrs. Leasen K. Robinson

     2016-17 will be my 10
    th year atTemple.  I began as a Teaching Assistant in 1st grade with Mrs. Roth and was hired full time the following year.  Since then I have taught 2nd grade (4 yrs) and Kindergarten (2 yrs).  This is my fourth year in UPK and I'm so glad to be here again.  My mother (Mrs. Oste) has taught at a private pre-school for over 25 years so I have it in my blood!

      I graduated from Jamestown Community College with an Associate's degree and transferred to SUNY Fredonia where I earned both my Bachelor's and Master's Degrees in Elementary Education. I am certified to teach all levels from Pre-K up through 6th grade, but my specialization is in early childhood.

    Other Information:
    Mr. Robinson and I have a son at home named Dexter.  He will be 2 in November and boy, is he busy!  He is learning new words every day and loves to move, move, move!  He has absolutely changed our world and we can't wait to see what he will do next.  He is persistent, curious, and never stops learning and that makes his mama so proud!

    When I'm not working or changing diapers, I like to read books on my Kindle,  go hiking with my family, and we also love to cook together.  Food Network is our favorite channel to watch and favorite magazine to get!
