Ms. Koetje is not afraid to be herself, and she encourages students to feel the same way. When you peek in her classroom windows you see they dress up in costumes for a lot of different things. With a passion for travel, Ms. Koetje visits countries around the globe. She brings stories of these exploits to students and encourages them to think about different places, people and events. Besides travelling, Leanne's hobbies include reading and cooking.
