Ms. Melissa Leskie

Welcome to Leskie's 11th grade English class! 

Happy Junior Year!  My name is Ms. Leskie and I have the privilege of being your 11th grade teacher.  I was born and raised in Washington Township, attended Bells Elementary School, Chestnut Ridge Middle School, and graduated from Washington Township High School.  I have also been teaching here for my entire career.  This year begins my 18th year of teaching 11th grade!  This town, this high school, and my students (past, present and future) are among the most important parts of my life.

(**See my profile pic for the other important parts♥)

 Growing with this community (literally since my birth) has shaped and fed my passion for teaching and learning.  Everything about this place matters to me - the people, the town, the education, and the relationships.  Every year, I learn as much as I teach and continue to build my tree of family and friends  - because my students become an extension of my family for life (around 2,200 strong and growing).

In the links to the left, you will find the course descriptions for my Honors and College Prep English classes for the 2019-2020 school year. Click on the appropriate level for information regarding our class content, class policies, and my contact information.  We will go through all of this together when we meet.

Please feel free to email me anytime at or send a chat through Remind with any questions or concerns regarding our class.

I am excited to meet each one of you and make the most of your Junior year as a family!
