Degrees and Certifications:

Mrs. Leslie Fansler

3rd Grade Teacher


Teaching HistoryI began teaching in 1998 at a Spanish/English dual immersion program in Sonoma County. After moving to Truckee, I spent eight years teaching middle school ELD at North Tahoe Middle. I transferred to Truckee Elementary and taught  ELD, and later switched to teaching 3rd grade. I love third graders!

Passion for Learning & Teaching:  I love opening minds to new ideas, as well as learning what eight year olds think about the world. Teaching students to use logic, reasoning, and empathy,  and become independent lifelong learners is my goal.

Other Pursuits: camping, hiking, mountain biking, reading, gardening, traveling, and spending time with family and friends

When I Grow Up: I’d like to own a self-sustaining small farm with crops, goats, pigs, and chickens… no, seriously!
