My name is Tracy Leach and I work in the Library as an assistant and in the Office as support. I come to High Plains to help out with kiddos because mine are almost grown. I have a girl and three boys. They were all born in different states: California, Massachusetts, Montana, and Indiana. I homeschooled all of them for many years. Our favorite way to spend time together was reading aloud. One of the funniest times was when I had to stop reading Anne of Green Gables because I was crying too hard during a sad part. An amazing story was when my daughter and I were digging a garden in the back of our turn-of-the-century home and found an old-fashioned key just as a robin landed on the white picket fence. We just so happened to be reading The Secret Garden at the time. You’ll have to read the book to find out why that event was so fantastic!
I love working at High Plains with all the wonderful staff and children. I think I have the best job working in the library with all the little people and wonderful books. I hope to share the same magic I experienced with my own children with others. I look forward to learning and growing along with everyone at High Plains Elementary for many years to come.
