Leah Thelen’s sixth grade class is like a box of chocolates.  When you open her classroom door, you never know what you’ll get.

You might see the students creating songs, dances, and rhymes for grammar. They could be Skyping with another sixth grade geography class somewhere in the U.S. as they ask questions to determine their mystery location.

Sunday, January 28 from 1-3 p.m.

Leah Thelen, of Southfield School, is in her 18th year of teaching and her eighth year at Southfield. In her class — and throughout Southfield — a love of reading is pervasive.  Her precocious group of students averaged reading 2300 pages each during the second quarter, and they have set an even higher goal for next quarter.

Southfield School is known for its talented and experienced faculty that cultivates curiosity, character, kindness and a lifelong love of learning, and Leah Thelen is doing just that.
