Mrs. 'Rosie Leal

Hello Families,


My name is Rosie Leal and I am one of the Literacy Leaders at Bernard J. Ward.  I work with all students in kindergarten- 5th grade.  I've been at the school for 10 years now.  I started working in Wheeling as a 4th grade teacher, after graduating from Illinois State Univeristy in 2004.  After that, I recieved my Masters Degree in Reading in 2006.  I stayed in Wheeling for 4 years until I had my first daughter, Gabriela.  Then I came to Bernard J. Ward and loved it here!! After some years I had another daughter and her name is Alexa. 

During my free time, I love to read and work out.  I also like playing barbies with my daughters!!  :-)
