Hello! My name is Carrie Leddy and this is my sixth year teaching First Grade at Shield’s Elementary. I am a Swan Valley graduate, so I am extremely excited to be back in the community in which I grew up in. I graduated from Saginaw Valley State University with Bachelor’s Degree in Elementary Education Degree and a Master’s Degree in Early Childhood. While growing up I was a dance teacher at Bohaty’s School of Dance for 11 years. After teaching dance I realized that my true passion is to teach children and make a difference in their lives.
I am married to my husband, Donald Leddy. He is a civil engineer. One of my hobbies is that my husband and I both race dirt bikes, so don’t be surprised if your child comes home talking about “Mrs. Leddy’s dirt bike race.” Some other hobbies that I enjoy doing are: water skiing, golfing, snowboarding, shopping, and reading.
My goal is to provide your child with a successful year in first grade. I am very passionate about my job and I will support your child academically and socially. We will explore and learn many new concepts this year. Please take time to ask your child about what they are learning at school and read with them every night. I feel like my students are part of my family, so I will check up on them even after they leave my classroom.
