LEAH BANFORD

2nd Grade Teacher

Originally from Georgia, Leah came to North Carolina from Colorado in 2020, where she obtained her Bachelor’s in Interdisciplinary Studies and Elementary Education at Western State College in 2008. Leah has spent the last 11 years teaching K-5 general music, providing intervention, and incorporating the arts with core curriculum in Crested Butte, Colorado, and she is excited to now be a part of the FernLeaf team.

In her spare time Leah enjoys singing and playing guitar, seeing as much live music as possible, and spending time outdoors with her husband and their Boston Terrier, Big P.
