Degrees and Certifications:
Mrs. Leslie Delgado
Welcome! I am a 4th grade teacher at the most fabulous school on the planet, West Maple!
I have been teaching for over 25 years and still feel priviledged to come each day to this job I love! I spend my days navigating my students along their educational path while making sure to embrace our strengths and support each other with those things we are not good at "yet". We attack a rigorous curriculum while making sure to laugh as much as possible.
I am a graduate of Michigan State University with a degree in Elementary Education and a Masters in Curriculum and Teaching. I have been married to another Spartan for the past 26 years. I have 3 of my own children who provide me with plenty of material to use in my teaching as well as opportunities to anticipate what my students will encounter as they navigate their future educational paths.
My brother, sister and I are the first generation to be born outside of Puerto Rico
I love the MSU Spartans (any sport) and Tigers baseball
My son recently graduated from MSU and is working for Lockheed Martin in Texas.
My daughter is a junior at NYU and is doing a study abroad in DC this semester.
My son Dominic is in his senior year at Groves! Go Falcons!
I taught in Colorado for 6 years
I love lilacs, Hostess (all kinds) and snow globes!
