Ms. Leslie Memoly
Hello! My name is Leslie Memoly. I am starting my 15th year of teaching. This is my third year with the Blue Springs School District and am very excited to be back and teaching my students about the languages and diversty of other countries as well as our own. I recieved my Bachelor of Arts in Spanish at MU and my Master's of Art in Teaching from UCM.
I am originally from Missouri, but have lived in Michigan, Costa Rica and Mexcio. I have always found talking and learning about other people fascinating. I enjoyed my time as an exchange student to Costa Rica in high school. I keep in touch with my host family of six brothers and two sisters.
I also worked in Mexico City, Mexico for General Electric. I came from the business world and did staff training in computer software, customer service, and Human Resources (in Spanish) for a joint business venture between the United States and Mexico.
I have two daughters, Danielle (23), who is also an MU graduate and currently working in Marketing for a local company. Brooke (19) was an exchange student in Chile last summer and had an amazing adventure. She will be attending Creighton University in Omaha, Nebraska this year.
The 2018-19 year will be a continuation of sharing my love of culture, language, and the great diversity we can all learn more about no matter our age.
