Leslie MacDonald – Preschool Teacher
Leslie MacDonald is proud to be the teacher at The Learning Tree Preschool – Sherwood Park. She has always been an Alberta girl, earning her Bachelor of Education degree at the University of Alberta. After graduating, she taught the primary grades in Edmonton.
After 12 years of teaching (during which she got married), Leslie was eager to take on a new and equally challenging job: full time mom to her first child, Liam. Five years later her family grew by 2 with the birth of twin boys, Rhys and Sean. It was during her first son’s participation in various preschool programs that her desire to become a preschool teacher was born.
Leslie saw first-hand how stimulating environments, caring teachers, and engaging activities sparked curiosity and learning in her young boys. Plus, they always seemed to be having so much fun! So once her own boys were well settled into their school programs, Leslie decided to follow a new path of teaching preschool. She loves that every class is a new and exciting learning opportunity, and that the children ALWAYS make her laugh! When she’s not planning for preschool, Leslie loves to garden, cook, read, travel, and scour thrift shops for bargains.
Lisa Phillips has enjoyed a twenty year career working with children. She has worked in the school system for 15 years, assisting with various grades in the classroom.
Lisa graduated with distinction from MacEwan University. She has an Arts and Science and Educational Assistant Diploma.
She has lived in Alberta all her life, married for 28 years and has two teenage boys that keep her busy.
Lisa loves working with Mrs. MacDonald! They both have a real love of books and often are found at the Strathcona Library together! Lisa also loves singing, dancing and learning with her Preschool friends at The Learning Tree Preschool.
