Welcome to Stevenson Elementary School. I would like to introduce myself, Leslie Woolsey, as your child’s fifth grade teacher. I have been teaching for twenty years with Decatur Public Schools. I started my career teaching seventh grade language arts, literature, and Read 180 at Roosevelt and Stephen Decatur Middle School. I moved to Stevenson Elementary in 2005 to teach fourth grade. I moved to fifth grade in 2006, and I have been teaching fifth grade ever since. In my free time I enjoy spending time with my husband – Chad, daughter – Anna, son – Aaron, and our four dogs.
I look forward to working with your child throughout our exciting and challenging school year. I have very high expectations of all my students both academically and behaviorally. Together we can create a positive learning experience for your child. To do so, I will strive to maintain close contact with all parents and guardians throughout the school year. I look forward to talking with you and will work hard to maintain an open line of communication throughout the school year.
