Success is about using our gifts, engaging our passions, and empowering others to do the same.
Aspire Education was born out of Leslee's desire to empower others to discover and seek their dreams! Leslee wants to help students rediscover the joy of learning!
Through small group challenges, self introspection, and a lot of fun Leslee will equip students and help them to take ownership of their future.
Students will have opportunities for growth and leadership that allows them to be more discerning and better at engaging others, while developing life skills such as good communication, self discipline, and tolerance.
Leslee and her team strive to empower you to use your gifts serving others and building a life full of joy and purpose!
What they're saying...
A few amazing students share about the incredible impact Mama D has had on their lives
In 2014, I began leadership courses with Leslee and she has continued to be my mentor to this day. My life would not be the same without her, not to be cliche, she has honestly changed my life. Throughout leadership club, camps, and trips she taught me that good leadership starts with the people in front of me. I got to learn the value of being myself; while I may not be the loudest member of a team, my ideas still have a purpose. If you have the opportunity to be mentored by Leslee, take it, you will not regret it.
