Dina Leonard - SEARCH
Hi! My name is Dina Leonard, and I am excited to be a gifted resource teacher at Moorefield Station where I will be teaching SEARCH. (SEARCH = Seeking Educational Alternatives to Reach and Challenge Higher level thinking skills). As the SEARCH teacher, I work with students in kindergarten through third grade. This year will be my 26th year teaching and my 17th year as a gifted resource teacher. I have previously taught 1st, 3rd, and 4th grade. I have a Bachelor of Science degree in Business Administration/Marketing from the University of Delaware, a Master’s degree in Elementary Education from the University of North Florida, and a Gifted Education endorsement from the University of Virginia. I am married and have two beautiful daughters, one a senior at Virginia Tech and one a freshman at the University of South Carolina, and an adorable pup named Blackjack. In my spare time, I enjoy exercising, binge-watching shows, and spending time with my family and friends. I am also a sports fan. I love watching football, especially my hometown Philadelphia Eagles. I am looking forward to a wonderful year of fun and learning.
