Thanks, Leslie Rolstad


As the school year comes to a close, I’m writing today to celebrate Leslie Rolstad. Leslie has dedicated the last four years to supporting our PreK students at Wilder Child Development Center.
As an AmeriCorps member with Minnesota Reading Corps, Leslie has focused on providing our students with practice and support to help build their skills and get ready for Kindergarten. Over the past four years, she has given a total of 5000 hours to help our students succeed!
Leslie works one-on-one and in small groups with students to help build their skills in literacy and math. Not only does she provide this much needed time with children, she does so in a way that is fun and exciting! With Leslie supplementing the excellent work our teachers are doing in their classrooms, we’ve seen wonderful growth.
The strong relationships Leslie has with the students she serves has been amazing to witness. Leslie has been an invaluable part of our Wilder community.
I couldn’t let the school year end without acknowledging Leslie and all she has done to support our students. As Leslie moves on to her next adventure, we’ll have big shoes to fill in the fall.
