Welcome everyone! My name is Leah Deschenes and I am a Grade 6 LA/Social teacher at WMS. I have my B.A., B.Ed., and M.Ed., and have been teaching for 15 years all over the world. I began my teaching career outside of London, Ontario, where I grew up but I decided to travel and see the world so I moved to Seoul, South Korea where I taught English as a Second Language for the next three years. From there, my husband and I decided to travel even more so we accepted jobs in Kuwait where we again stayed and taught at an international school for another three years. This is my third year at Westpark Middle School and I have just loved it. We now have two children (a 1 year old and a 5 year old) and my current interests include the outdoors, reading, sewing, and all things literacy.
