Hi! My name is Leslie Coffee and I am thrilled to be returning as a third grade teacher at Rocklin Academy Gateway. Prior to transitioning into the classroom, I worked as the Director of the before and after school program at Rocklin Academy Gateway. Working and inspiring students has always been a dream of mine, and I am beyond excited to continue working with students at Rocklin Academy Gateway.
After graduating in 2009 from Oakmont High School, I moved to Orange County to attend Hope International University. In 2013 I received my B.A. in Social and Behavioral Science with a concentration in History and a Minor in Biblical Studies. I moved back to the Sacramento area after completing my bachelor's degree and began working as an academic adviser and job coach to adults with special needs. During this time, I made the decision to continue my education and began working and completing my Masters degree in Education.
Since the R.A. Gateway opening in 2014, I have been a proud employee of the Rocklin Academy Family of Schools community. I have enjoyed working and helping develop the Later Gator Program, as well as working hand in hand with students and parents in the third grade. I cannot wait to continue growing with your students!
