Leah Giles's Classroom

Hello My Name Is...

Leah Giles

2017 Class

Hello! I am the 3rd and 4th grade teacher at Perkins Academy. I graduated from the University of Massachusetts Amherst in 1999 with a double major in Education and Psychology. I began my teaching career that year by moving across the country for a job in Tracy, California. There I stayed for 7 years while I earned my Master's Degree in Curriculum and Instruction from Chapman University, a husband, and a growing family. 

In 2006 we moved back to New England to be closer to family. That's when I became a teacher in Marlow. I have taught grades K-5 throughout my career and couldn't imagine doing anything else. I love spending my days at our community-focused school. 

Here at Perkins Academy, we take pride in building strong relationships with all of our students and the wonderful people in our community.
