About The Teacher

My name is Caitlin Leman and I am a graduate of St. Bernard's School in Tracy and St. Mary's High School here in Stockton. I was always an active member of St. Bernard's Parish growing up, from Altar Serving through grade school to volunteering at the St. Bernard's Religious Store before it's closing in 2014. I earned my BS in Finance at California State University, East Bay and have studied Computer Engineering, Accounting, and Child Development, obtaining my AS in Child Development at San Joaquin Delta College. 

In 2013 I received a call from Ms. Jen Corbett, then the Preschool Director here at St. Luke's. She knew that I was studying Child Development and was in need of a teacher to help the expanding Pre-Kindergarten class. I started that August and in the December of that year started working with the 2 and 3 year old class with Miss Jana Sanderson. Working with the Preschool students was always a joy and an honor and while I loved working with the young children, I wanted to stretch my wings and work with older students.

After 3 years at the Preschool, I joined the Elementary school as the Kindergarten Aide for the 2016-2017 School Year. The transition was an exciting one and working with older students in a more academic setting was fulfilling and stimulating. With the absence of a full Third Grade teacher, I offered my time to help fill the gap and work with some of the students who I had in that first Pre-Kindergarten class from 2013. Third Grade has proven to be a very exciting time for these students and watching them grow, learn, and excel has become the highlight of each day.

When I am not teaching, I enjoy spending time with family and friends, travelling to Buffalo, New York, my parents' hometown (Go Bills!), and going to comedy shows and concerts. I love to read, knit, sing, and sleeping in on the weekends. 

The best part of teaching is seeing that spark in a child's eye when they finally understand a concept and connect the dots. I look forward to seeing that spark in your child's eye during this school year.
