LEEF works hard to support all of Leander ISD's 43 campuses and 41,000 students. They provide teaching grants, scholarships for AP tests and dual-credit text books, thousands of free books, college coaches and more. I love seeing the passion and hard work this non-profit and all their supporters give back to support students thrive and achieve their goals. Each student has a different journey and LEEF is there to make it happen.
LEEF is one of the best organizations I've worked with and now for. Any organization that is focused on students and teachers is a true winner in my book. LEEF goes above and beyond to provide resources for teachers that want to transform teaching and learning, or dive deeper into a new technology tool for instruction, or want to get kids learning outside their comfort-zone with some collaborative work spaces.
If you have a passion for education, while continuing to foster and support teachers and students; this is the organization for you!!
LEEF connects caring partners with our talented teachers. Through its donations, LEEF empowers teachers and schools to support students. It impacts culture to see teacher rewarded for their passions and innovations. LEEF also funds a college counselor position at all of high schools, giving every student the option of college.
As a science and social studies teacher, there are many nonfiction books that supplement my instruction. Getting multiple copies of a title is the challenge, however. I applied with LEEF (pretty simple application) and won the money that paid for 7 sets of 8 books that I began using right away this year. Hurray!
LEEF is a great organization and is fully committed to all the students and staff of Leander ISD. So many exciting things happening with this organization and within LISD!
LEEF is a true difference-maker in our school district and community! They know how to not only encourage teachers and staff to get excited about a "what if", but they help to make that possibility a reality by providing the resources to bring it to life. We are truly grateful that LEEF was willing to stand behind our campus' vision for getting high-quality, in-demand books into the hands of our students as it has given us the ability to influence our community far beyond what we could have done without their support. Thanks to LEEF, we're able to not only encourage students to read for pleasure but who will be readers for life!
Leander ISD LEEF is so supportive of teachers and students! This year I was able to attend a professional learning conference on instructional practice and improving classroom and school culture. It was amazing and I brought so much back to my team and campus!
LEEF helped grow our new school's social and emotional resources.They awarded our school enough to provide sensory materials in each grade level, as well as additional stories and resources to help teachers cover social and emotional learning! We now have a great start to a resource that can be used by every teacher for every student.
LEEF is truly a cheerleader for classroom teachers. Their support for literacy is evident in the services they provide for our district (grants for teachers and provider of K-12 books). Attached is a photo of the LEEF team who came to Rutledge with a huge check (literally) to provide funding for We Both Read: Engagement, Enjoyment, and Achievement, which will equip our literacy partners with 41 hard-covered books to read with our K-3 students.
