Joanne Leach joined the St. Bernadette Parish School faculty this year with joy in her heart. Joanne graduated from Washington State University in 1972 with a BA in Elementary Education/Social Studies. She taught for thirty years for the South Whidbey School District and for twelve years for St. Mark Parish School in Shoreline WA. Joanne strives to create an environment that is a safe and caring space in which children may learn.She wants her students to know they can learn something new each and every day. Her teaching philosophy is based on helping children feel good about themselves through praise and encouragement. She feels children are God’s greatest gifts. When not teaching Joanne loves to garden, read, cook and needlepoint.
