Mrs. Leisha Lucente

Hello Trailside Family!



My name is Leisha Lucente and I am a 7th Grade Social Studies teacher.  I'm a Double Duke graduate from James Madison University.  I received my B.S. in Interdisciplinary Studies with concentrations in Social and Natural Sciences in 2014, and then received my Masters in Middle School Education in 2015.  I love JMU! 



I began my teaching career here at Trailside in the Fall of 2015, and I am so excited to be back for another year!  I love helping students find their voice and ways they can make meaningful contributions to the world.  In addition to empowering my students in the classroom, I am the proud sponsor of Trailside's Girl Up Club, which provides the platform for girls to advocate for women's rights around the world! 



This year I hope to engage my students and have them discover their passions, through our Passion Projects. I also wish to instill a growth mindset that will follow them throughout the course of the rest of their lives. I'm so excited for what we will accomplish this year!



When not at school I enjoy traveling with my husband, taking long walks with my rescue pup, and spending time with family.
