Lesley started teaching at the tough end. Graduating from college, her two year probation began in an Australian outback town with a kindergarten of diverse children - many so poor they had never seen a book or held a pencil. In the dust of that town, Lesley discovered how to use her gene pool talents of music, songs, drama and art as the essential keys to engaging her class in active learning.
