Hello! I'm so excited to be working at Crossroads. Year Round education has been a passion of mine since 2001 when I began teaching.
A little about me, I started my career at Crosswinds Arts & Science School, and look forward to bringing the inquiry based experiences that I gained there, to the curious students and teachers here at Crossroads.
In my free time I like to do yoga, read and go for hikes and walks. My family and I live in West Saint Paul. My husband and I have two middle school boys and a cat, named Murphy.
Murphy has his own Instagram page, and if you are into cats on the Internet, you should check it out: he_is_murphy_the_cat. If you are more into using the Internet for educational inspiration, follow me on Twitter: @leahbourg. And, if you aren't into the Internet at all...stop in my office where you will find a wide variety of art work created by my family as well as the largest ball of tin foil in Minnesota.
I look forward to inspiring each student to think critically, pursue their dreams and change the world.
