My favorite thing about teaching is the “Ah-Ha” moment of when students finally get something that they previously didn’t. I LOVE it when that happens and it is so eye opening for the student. It is amazing and rewarding to get to see it happen.

-Michelle Leske, Middle School Science Teacher

Michelle Leske has spent the last 3 years as a teacher on staff at STRIDE Academy, and she was a substitute teacher at STRIDE before then! We couldn’t be happier to have her brilliant mind leading our Middle School students though their understanding of science. She has a Bachelors of Arts Degree from St Mary’s University of Minnesota in Winona, and her Masters of Arts in Instruction also from St. Mary’s University of Minnesota.
