About Me

Hello friends of Lyndale!

My name is Leah Carey, and I am excited to be back as English Learners teacher for 2nd Grade!

Before Lyndale, I taught Middle School, Kindergarten, First and Second Grade English Learners in Saint Cloud for a few years.

I am originally from Hutchinson, Minnesota and went to college at the College of Saint Benedict and Saint John's University. I studied Spanish, English as a Second Language and K-12 Education. I'm also working on my graduate degrees from the University of Minnesota.  Before teaching, I spent some time studying in Spain, and teaching bilingual pre-school for migrant families!

I believe that being multilingual opens so many doors, and I love to learn new languages. When I'm not teaching, I'm running, hiking and spending time with my friends and family!

I  look forward to serving the students and families at Lyndale and enjoy learning from others in our diverse community!
