Mrs. Leslie Kruger
Welcome to Kindergarten!
My name is Leslie Kruger and I will be your child’s kindergarten teacher. I am very excited about the upcoming school year. I look forward to a year of learning and sharing with your child. I anticipate building a friendly cooperative partnership with you and your family. This is my twenty fourth year of teaching, all of which have been spent as part of the Coolidge family. I have taught kindergarten for twenty two years; and first grade for two years. I am happy to be in kindergarten and to have the privilege of working and learning with your child.
Like you, I am also a parent. I have two children; Loren who attends MSU and Ryan who is a sophomore in high school. My husband and I feel blessed to have them. When I am not working, I am usually at the soccer field or at the pool. My husband, Jeff, works as well. We love doing things as a family and our children certainly keep us busy. I have always lived in Livonia and attended Livonia Public Schools myself, from K-12. After high school, I attended Wayne State University. I received my Bachelor’s degree in Psychology and later my Masters of Arts in Teaching with an Early Childhood Endorsement.
My goal this year is the same as every year, to create an environment that meets the needs of individuals and helps facilitate growth and a love of learning. I hope your child will want to come to school and will be excited to learn new things. Through guidance, support and love, I will help your child achieve his or her best.
I look forward to a successful school year!
