Hello My Name Is...

Lea Wingate

Welcome to First Grade

First Grade Teacher

I am wonderfully excited and blessed to be teaching at Heard Elementary.  I have a Bachelor's Degree in Psychology and Certification to teach P-5 Special Education and General Curriculum.  

I began my teaching career in 1992 in a Montessori based Preschool -1st grade school where I taught until 2012. I moved back to my hometown of Franklin, Ga. that same year and began teaching at Heard Elementary in 2014.

 I am currently expanding my certification to include Gifted and ESOL.  One of the reasons I became a teacher is my own love of learning; you will always find me knee-deep in a new class, doing research to find a unique way to help the learners in my class, and seeking out resources that are exciting and creative to instill a love of learning in my students. 

If you should have any questions or concerns during the school year, I urge you to contact me.  The closer we work, the more your child will grow academically.
