Tamara Leachman – 4th and 5th Grade Math at Chalmers School of Excellence- Chicago, IL
My name is Tamara Leachman, and I am a 4th/5th grade math/science teacher. Prior to becoming a math teacher, I was a self-contained teacher (teaching all subjects) for 3 years. I love to teach math and this is my second year where math is my area of focus. I love math and all of the problem solving, critical thinking, and hands-on experiences we get to have.
I grew up up in Chicago and attended CPS from elementary to high school. I attended DePaul University from undergrad and I am currently there obtaining a master’s in Curriculum Studies.
In my spare time, I enjoy spending time with my Yorkie, Karter, family, and friends. I am a self-proclaimed dancer, I love traveling, and I love trying water sports.
