I am: Leslyn Lang and I teach 7th grade

grew up: Around the country.
My father was military so we moved a lot. I spent from 5th grade to 12th grade in Kent,
Wa. I graduated from Kent-Meridian High
School and later from the University of Idaho-Moscow with two bachelor’s
degrees. I then graduated from Concordia University-Portland with my Master's
The reason I want to teach is to: I want
to share whatever knowledge I have.
My favorite memory from my
own school days: I got to do fun stuff with my three best
friends. We had such a fun time. I really liked many of my teachers and
learned a lot.
In my spare time I: visit geological sites around the state. I
love history. I used to go out and locate old historical cemeteries, take pictures
and post to the Internet so anyone looking for it could find it. The oldest cemetery I found was from the 1600s. I love puzzles and detective work. I also maintain two genealogy websites for
Spotsylvania County and the City of Fredericksburg. I designed them both.
My favorite book is: anything by John Sandord
or James Patterson. I also like Dylan
Willams books and Harry Wong books.
