Cheryl Leifson is a kindergarten teacher at Park Elementary with 19 years of service in Nebo School District and three years in another district.

Principal Hughes said, “I have been so blessed to have worked with Cheryl Leifson for the past three years. She is one of the finest educators I have ever seen. She puts her heart and soul into her work so her kindergarten students have the best chance at success. Cheryl is constantly reflecting on her practice to make sure she is giving her students what they need. She always has data and is constantly analyzing it to make sure her current path is correct. Cheryl is a team player and is constantly trying to make Park better. She is one of my staff members that I know I can always go to for anything. She is always willing to help. Even though Cheryl decided, a decision that wasn’t made lightly, to retire at the end of this year, she is still giving it her all. She has learned SeeSaw for ‘at home learning’ and makes videos every day for her students. I love that she collaborates with her colleagues as well as she does. Cheryl takes input from others to help perfect her practice. She is amazing! Park has been so lucky to call her a Park Panther!
