Degrees and Certifications:
Hello! My name is Leah Nascimento and I am a first grade teacher here at King! This is my second year teaching at King and my fifth year teaching first grade. Before coming to King, I taught for three years in Minnesota. I graduated from the University of Minnesota with both my bachelor’s and master’s degree in elementary education. I love everything about first grade and all the exploring, learning, and fun we get to have!
When I am not at school or “Pintresting” new ideas for my classroom, I enjoy spending time with my husband Thiago and my family. Together, Thiago and I like to explore Ann Arbor and travel the world. I have always loved traveling and learning about new cultures and trying new foods. I have especially loved traveling to Brazil to visit my husband’s family. I grew up in Chippewa Falls, Wisconsin, and I am a DIE HARD PACKER fan, Go Pack, Go!
