I'm Leslie Brown, 5/6 Math, English, and 6th Science and Spelling teacher. I am beginning my 15th year teaching in Highmore.
I grew up near Wasta, SD and graduated from St. Martin's Academy in Rapid City. I hold degrees from SDSU in Family/Consumer Sciences and Business Education and from BHSU in Elementary Certification. I have taught previously in Hyannis, Nebraska, and Harrold, South Dakota.
My husband and I ranch near Harrold and have two grown children and four step grandchildren.
On this webpage you will find my contact information, a class schedule for 6th grade, course expectations, an incidental classroom supply list, and student letters.
I am looking forward to having your children in my class this year.

I hope you enjoy your last year of elementary and that it will be a special one. I am always available for help and you can come to me with any questions you may have. I’m here to help and I hope we have a great year!

http://www.planbookedu.com/s/WAUK7 This link to my lesson plans is only accurate for the current week. Future plans beyond this week are always under construction and subject to great changes.
I utilize IXL Math, a web based program in math. We have not abandoned our textbook, however, as the lessons selected are based on the Saxon lesson from the textbook. Thirty-three percent of their grade comes from these lessons. Occasionally a student may have IXL homework. If you do not have a computer or internet, I am available to let them work on it in my room after school.
