My name is Leah Sprague and I am a kindergarten teacher in Utah.  I am originally from a small town in Ohio and a mid-western by heart.  I have taught for almost two years now and have loved just about every minute of it! ;) I have taught both half day and full day kindergarten and I definitely favor teaching full day.  I can't speak enough good things about the benefits and advantages of teaching all day kindergarten.
Now for a bit of Q and A:
Q: What would you be doing if you weren’t a teacher?
A: I love teaching, don't get me wrong but if I didn't have to be a full time teacher I would love to be a teachers aide.  Same job, less stress and responsibility.
Q: What are your hobbies?
A: Haha, I'm working on that.  I really love to spend my free time reading blogs and while that is great I do need to find something else to do so I can turn off my teacher brain once in a while.
Q: When you were little, what did you want to be when you grew up?
A:  At first I wanted to be a teacher then for a long time I wanted to be an interior designer.  I started college with an audio major to be a music recorder. Hmmm...
Q: What are your guilty pleasures?
A: Diet Cherry Pepsi I know, I'm one crazy lady!
Q: When you’re on vacation, where do you like to go?
A: Since my husband and I moved to Utah we have spent all of our vacation time back in Ohio with family and I would choose that 1,000 times over at this point in our life however, if we had some extra time and money I would prefer to spend it somewhere warm.

Q: What do you value most in others?
A:  Passion, a positive attitude and vulnerability.
Q: If you could choose one of your personality traits to pass down to your kids, what would it be? 
A: Passion.
Q: If you could have lunch with anyone in the world….living or dead…who would it be? 
A: My husband - every time!
