Homeschool Classes - Barrington Area Library
Leslee's classes will challenge and equip students with the desire and skill to aim high – to not settle for “normal” or the “status quo”, to build confidence and
critical thinking skills that will bring their
learning to a new level!
STUDENTS WILL BECOME MORE CONFIDENT, COMPETENT & COMPASSIONATE
DEVELOP COMMUNICATION SKILLS
BUILD PERSISTENCE, RESILIENCE, AND CREATIVITY
INNOVATION, COLLABORATION, AND CURIOSITY
When students are given the time to think and explore, an opportunity to make their ideas become reality, and have a road map to get there, they rise to the challenge.
