3rd Grade

Teacher, Leslie Sheffield

Leslie Sheffield was born and raised in San Angelo, Texas. After graduating from high school, she obtained her Bachelor of Science in Education from Angelo State University.  She taught 4th grade Language Arts and Gifted & Talented in Virginia Beach, Virginia for four years.

Mrs. Sheffield has been married to her husband, Justin, for almost 17 years, and they have two amazing boys who attend Montgomery Christian Academy. Leslie was a military spouse for over 15 years until her husband was medically retired in 2014 for wounds sustained in combat. The Sheffields felt God’s calling to move back home to Texas from the mountains of Idaho and to officially call Montgomery their home in the summer of 2017.  They have become active members at Fellowship of Montgomery by being in involved in the AWANAS program and VBS.

The Sheffield family enjoys spending time together and cherishes every moment that they are all together.  Mrs. Sheffield loves being outdoors, playing soccer with her boys, tending to her garden, or camping as a family.  She loves to workout, play volleyball, and is a self-proclaimed puzzle master

Mrs. Sheffield is passionate about reading and hopes she will inspire students to become avid readers in and out of her classroom.  Her philosophy of education is one that believes teachers, parents, and students must work together in order to create a safe, loving, and positive classroom environment to help students develop into lifelong learners.  All children learn differently, think differently, and have experienced life in different settings. Mrs. Sheffield's approach to learning is one that will allow her to meet each student's needs in an appropriate way.

She is truly excited to see the Lord work in her classroom and to connect reading, math, history and science to the Word of God.  She not only wants to see her students excel academically, but to see them grow in the Lord and to become Godly leaders of the future.
