Degrees and Certifications:
Mrs. Leslie Delgado
Welcome! I am a 5th grade teacher at the most fabulous school on the planet, West Maple!
I have been teaching for over 20 years and still feel priviledged to come each day to this job I love! I spend my days preparing my students for their transition to middle school 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 25 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 have a 10 year old Shitzu named Becky
I love the MSU Spartans (any sport) and Tigers baseball
My son is in the MSU marching band this year!
I taught in Colorado for 6 years
I love lilacs, Hostess (all kinds) and snow globes!
