Ms. Brooke Leechalk
Hello and welcome!
My name is Ms. Brooke Leechalk. I am a graduate of Greater Latrobe and Seton Hill University. Upon graduating from SHU with my Bachelor's Degree in Early Childhood and Special Education, I accepted a classroom assistant position here at BES in the Autistic Support classroom. During that time, I earned my Master's Degree in Middle Level Education. It was a great year where I was blessed to meet and work with the fantastic BES staff and faculty. The following year I accepted a lead teacher position at the Seton Hill University Child Development Center. I'm grateful for three years at the university level, working with pre-service teachers, the university staff, and my students and their families. This summer I was hired as a BES special education teacher and I could not be more thrilled to be "home." Once a wildcat, always a wildcat!
Outside of the classroom, I work for the City of Greensburg as an Ice Skating Instructor. The ice is my second home and I love getting to share my passion with new (and veteran) skaters! I currently live about a half hour from BES with my fiance and his daughter. We are planning a November 2020 wedding! A few of my favorite things are: spending time with my family and friends, ice skating, The Lion King, and German Shepherd dogs.
I am looking forward to working together to ensure the success of our students. As an "educarer," I can't wait to work with you and your child this school year and make it the best it can be!
