Mrs. Debbie Leckel
Grade 2

Elementary Education degree from Mt. Senario in Ladysmith; Master’s in Early Childhood Special Education from UW-Eau Claire.

A graduate herself of SFdS, Debbie started at SFdS in 2007.  After teaching the combined 1st & 2nd grdes, it was decided in the spring of 2015 to commbine 1st grade with kindergarten instead to help the 2nd graders prepare appropriately for 3rd grade. 

Debbie & her husband, Jason, have two children: Aaron, a 1st grader at SFdS and Faith, who started pre-school in September 2015.  When she is not teaching, Debbie enjoys spending time with her family—family comes first.  She enjoys scrapbooking, weaving baskets, crafting, reading, traveling, camping and being with friends.  Her husband Jason owns and operates a local trucking company.

“I am a proud graduate of St. Francis de Sales School (1988).  I found myself excited and privileged to come back to St. Francis as a teacher.  Teaching at a Catholic school is not just a worthy profession, it is a vocation that strives to educate for life, in Christian and family values."
