Our Educators: Julie Leffler

Julie Leffler is a special education teacher at Schuylerville High School. She teaches a life skills and work-based learning class. The course teaches functional academics, independent living skills, and job skills. She and her students go on several community-based instructional trips each month. During these trips, students explore the local community and utilize skills they’ve learned in the classroom.

Saratoga TODAY asked Leffler about being an educator, as well as her future plans.

What is your favorite part of being an educator?

My favorite part of being an educator is having the opportunity to watch my students grow into independent young adults during our time together.

What are some things about your job that the general public might not understand?

The pandemic changed the way education looks and the ripple effects are still being felt. In the case of my students, many programs and services they could be entering into after graduation are understaffed and not fully operating. This has been a challenge as they move into adulthood.

What are your future plans/goals?

My plan for the future is to continue teaching at Schuylerville High School.
