I grew up in Harford County, Maryland. I attended Frostburg State University and Towson University and earned a Bachelor of Science degree in Elementary Education. I earned a Master's degree in Curriculum and Instruction with an emphasis on science from Loyola University. I have taught third, fourth, fifth, eighth, and Gifted and Talented students in the past. I love teaching, and feel blessed to have the opportunity to teach in Garrett County as well. I love to read and paint in my spare time. I love to watch football and baseball, and yes I am a Baltimore fan!

Hi, my name is Leslie Millar and I have worked at Broad Ford for the past seven years as a substitute teacher. I am originally from Northern New Jersey, but I went to WVU for college where I learned to love the country roads. After a short stint in Kansas City, Missouri, I headed back east to Garrett County in 2012 and have enjoyed mountain life ever since! I will be going back to school through Frostburg State in the near future for my Master's Degree in Elementary Education. In my spare time, I enjoy spending time with my fiance, my son, and our three lovable pitbulls.
