Leslie Copeland - Pre-Kindergarten Lead Teacher
Education: BA Washington State University MA Gonzaga University
My experience with children has been mostly at the preschool level, though I have spent time substituting and working as an instructional aide in the public schools at the elementary level. More recently, I have been working at St. James Catholic School as the Director and Preschool teacher for both 3â€™s and 4â€™s.Â
A Little About Me
I have lived in McMinnville for 15 years and really enjoy the friendly, small town atmosphere, as well as the proximity to the beach, my favorite place to visit. I have a great family, including my husband, Greg, who also works at Linfield; daughter Kelly and son-in-law Josh (both Linfield grads!); son Corey (an OSU student) and a daughter, Kacie, who is also a Wildcat! My favorite activities are gardening, playing games with family and friends, walking, and, as I mentioned, spending time at the beach.
