Welcome to JoAnn Leleck Elementary School at Broad Acres   


We want to highlight a huge accomplishment of one of our staff members, Genesis Chavez.  Ms Chavez is a first grade teacher here at JLES and she is an Equity Warrior.  She has been previously featured in MSEA’s Action Line as a young activist and she currently also teaches an equity course in the McDaniel equity program.  Her newest accomplishment is that she wrote an essay in a newly published book, Millennial Teachers of Color, which is a text that explores the opportunities and challenges for creating and sustaining a teacher work force that will support millennial teachers of color.  Her perspective is poignant and thought provoking Congratulations to Genesis on this awesome accomplishment!   We are lucky to have her here at JoAnn Leleck Elementary School at Broad Acres! 

Social Emotional Learning through Chess is a counseling program that uses chess to help students acquire and effectively apply the knowledge, attitudes, and skills necessary to understand and manage their emotions, set and achieve positive goals, feel and show empathy for others, establish and maintain positive relationships, and make responsible decisions.

 Please watch the video to see Mr. Moreno and our fantastic Bulldogs in action.
