Kindergarten Assistants

Hi! My name is Leticia "Tish" Watson and I'm going into my 11th year here at LRES as a kindergarten instructional assistant! I love that I am one of the first teachers your child gets to work with as they begin their elementary school journey. I want to be able to help mold and shape their little minds into believing they are the best of the best and they can do anything they put their minds to. Working with children is a passion of mine and I look forward to seeing the growth and development of each student I'm able to work with throughout the year as they come into their own! Let's go Lions!
