Hi Decatur Family,
My name's LeiAnna Carrasco. I have been teaching in Chicago for 6 years. I'm originally from Brooklyn, New York. I transitioned to Chicago in 2014 to complete my Masters of Elementary Education from DePaul University. I've worked with 3rd, 4th, 5th and 6th graders in the past 6 years. I love working with children and watching them grow as lifelong learners. I take a balanced approach in teaching not only the academic content but providing students with the tools for their social emotional wellness. In my free time, you'll find me reading a book, playing the ukulele or playing volleyball with my husband.
I'm looking forward to a wonderful year of teaching and learning. Please know that I am committed to your child's success!
