Leann joined the Religious Education staff at OBUUC in 2009. She has a Bachelor of Science in Education from the University of Wisconsin, in the area of Behavioral Disabilities, for Kindergarten through Twelfth grade. After teaching for thirteen years, and before becoming the mother of twins, she returned to college at UW-Milwaukee to pursue a degreee in Graphic Design and Film Production.
Leann’s teaching career includes; teaching special education at a boarding school in Scotland for two years; teaching at-risk students at the high school level in Union Grove for five years; teaching special education middle school children in Racine for five years; and teaching elementary school special education, also in Racine, for a year.
When her twins were born in 2004, Leann became a stay-at-home mother, and due to an interest in her family’s health, she began researching safe and healthy household cleaning and body care products. This interest lead her to start an online retail company which sold natural and organic products. Now that organic products are easier to find in retail stores, her career has returned to education.
Leann is a Racine native, she graduated from Washington Park High School, and after 10 years living in Milwaukee, and 2 years in Scotland, returned to Racine to be closer to her family.
