Leslie Murphy is thrilled to be a part of the team at Plena Mind Center! After becoming a certified teacher in 2004, she found her passion for literacy and has worked with children of all ages for the past 14 years. Leslie is trained in many reading and writing programs to facilitate a learning environment that caters to a student’s instructional needs. In 2016, she earned her Certified Academic Language Practitioner certification, which makes her highly qualified to work with children and adolescents who have Dyslexia. She is passionate about working with students to guide them in understanding their learning style and individualizing instruction to help each student feel successful. Leslie is excited to work in the collaborative environment at Plena that is centered around an individual’s needs. In her spare time, Leslie enjoys being with her three children, hiking, reading and exercising.
