Mrs. Leslie Dehnert

Hello My name is Mrs. Dehnert or Mrs. D,

I am a mom to five wonderful children, two grandbabies and five furbabies. I am also the wife to a active duty service member. I moved to North Carolina from Germany in 2019, while living in Europe I had a rewarding job teaching AU students on the German economy. I have also had the opportunity to teach in Colorado at University of Colorado Colorado Springs (UCCS) as a teacher assistant in the psychology department. While living in Colorado and attending UCCS, I was an lab assistant in a cognative Psychology lab conducting research on functions of the brain and learning. I have a deep passion for working with children of all ages and development abilities. This is currently my third year here at Highland elementary in the EC department.  I look forward to working with you and your children!
