My name is Mr. Leistner and I am excited to be working with your child in 5th grade this year! They will accomplish and grow so much as they are prepared for middle school next year! A little bit about me: This is my 5th year teaching (all 5th grade), and I can't imagine teaching any other grade. 5th graders are the best! I moved to Colorado Springs from Michigan four years ago, and I have been enjoying everything that Colorado has to offer! I love the outdoors including hiking, biking, walking, and taking pictures of nature. Some of my favorite areas to hike are North Cheyenne Canyon, Woodland Park, and trails off of Gold Camp Road. I graduated from Grand Valley State University in west Michigan with an education degree and a specialization in science. STEM is one of my passions and favorite things about science and math. I am also a lifetime die-hard Broncos fan! I bleed orange and blue! If you ever have any questions or concerns please feel free to contact me and I will reply promptly!
