McMinn, Leah - (5th Grade)

Leah McMinn

This is my 16th year teaching and my 3rd year at Fairview Elementary!  My students know that they are loved and encouraged to be the best version of themselves. I love teaching 5th grade math and science and I know it will be a great year!

I grew up in Jacksonville, FL and moved to North Carolina when I was in the 5th grade.  I now live in Fairview with my husband Brad, our nine-year-old son, Dane, our 3 yr old son, Grey, our cats, Luna and Shadow and English Bulldog Weller. I graduated from Western Carolina University in 2004 and then received my Masters Degree in Education from WCU in 2007.  I enjoy spending time fishing with my husband and son, sewing, reading,  good coffee, watching the Florida GATORS play football in the fall, and teaching!
