Welcome to the 2020-2021 School Year!
Welcome to our Locke School Pre-K Program and what may be the most unusual year ever!
My name is Mrs. Leslie Couty and this is my 31st school year within the Chicago Public Schools. I am a happily married mother of 3 grown children who loves hanging out with family, hiking in nature, photography, fishing, art museums, and most of all travel! My other passion is early childhood education. I've taught pre-k for more than 25 of my 30 years and absolutely love it! This year may look and feel different, but I'll continue to devote my days to providing your child with an engaging and developmentally appropriate education that will prepare them for future success.
Whether in person or virtual, I'm really looking forward to meeting my students and their families, as we work together to provide a safe and nurturing educational environment for our youngest learners. Along with my amazing co-teacher Mrs. C. Frank and our wonderful assistant Ms. C. Garibay, we can't wait to sing, work and play with our kiddos. I want you to know I have an open-door policy and I am here for you if you ever need anything. I check my email several times a day, so please feel free to send me an e-mail anytime. firstname.lastname@example.org
