Assistant Director

MARGARET LECKEY

Mrs. Margaret Leckey feels fortunate to be actively involved both in the preschool classroom and in the school office of St. Charles. Mrs. Leckey has graduate degrees in Slavic Languages and Literatures from the University of California at Berkeley, and experience as an editor before coming to St. Charles. Her involvement in her own children’s schools and activities, however, led her to the world of early childhood education, where she is very happy learning and growing alongside the three- and four-year-olds. “I absolutely love this age,” she says of preschoolers. “I am constantly fascinated by these small people with their huge and completely distinct personalities.”
