April 19, 2023

This week's spotlight is on Lesli Bailey. Mrs. Bailey is one of our amazing Kindergarten instructional assistants!   Mrs. Bailey and her husband

We love having Mrs. Bailey with us at Columbia! Let's learn more about her...

Years at Columbia ES: 2 years

Years in Education: 3 years

Why do you love working at Columbia? The first word I heard when I walked through the doors at Columbia was “Welcome!”  It is a wonderful working environment and I try to pay that forward every day.  It’s a place where everybody’s name is important.  Oh!  And did I mention the positive energy?

What is your favorite thing about teaching? I love watching the moments of growth and connections in the students, you can actually see them every day. How lucky are we!

Favorite place to visit: It very simple, give me an east coast beach any day, but my heart is in Bethany Beach.  However, a plane trip would take me straight to Anna Maria Island.

Hobbies/Interests: I love yoga, I read every day and I try to fill my house with art. 

Fun fact! I am certified in BrainGym and calligraphy!
