Mrs. Leigh Dean

My name is Leigh Dean and I am an elementary school teacher at Church Hill Elementary School.  My journey to teaching began with a wonderful education in Queen Anne's County.  After high school, I attended and graduated from Fleet Business School in Annapolis, MD in 1990.  I continued my studies by earning a Bachelor of Science degree at Salisbury State University in 1994 and a Master's of Education from Salisbury State University in 1999.  I began teaching first grade at Kent Island Elementary School in 1995.  In 2001, I moved to Church Hill Elementary school where I taught first grade for two years. In 2002, my love for teaching second grade began.  In the fall of 2022, I will continue my journey as a third grade teacher at CHES.  I enjoy kayaking, boating, reading, hiking, and camping with my husband and two daughters.
