Leah Strickland Special Education Teacher, SERT K-5

Hello, my name is Leah Strickland and I have been a Special Education Teacher for 12 years and a special education teacher (SERT) in Minneapolis for 10 years. This is my first year at Sheridan. I graduated from Saint Mary’s University in 2004 with a degree in Graphic Arts and Graduated from Saint Thomas University with my Masters in Special Education in 2007. I live and raise my family in the South West Metro. I have three children, 2-year-old boy, 6-year-old girl, and 9-year-old boy. We are very active, and enjoy sports, college football, and playing on the lake or going to the pool and traveling. Most of my spare time is spent with my family, my children and spending time with my husband.  Our most recent family trip was to San Diego and Palm Springs. Taking time to relax, enjoying the ocean, exploring Torry Pines, LaJolla, and Andres Canyon, and Joshua Tree National Park. We are excited to plan our next trip and hope to explore another National Park in the US or Canada. I am looking forward to having a great year a Sheridan.
