Lunsford is a well-equipped facility with lots of resources. Make sure to take a tour of the building if you have not already done so.

The teachers here love what they do, and it shows!

This is my seventh year teaching for Loudoun County Public Schools. Before coming to Loudoun County, I taught in northern California for 7 years. My teaching experience includes teaching grades 3, 4, and 5, as well as Math 6 and Math 6/7 (pre-algebra).

- Accelerated Math 6/7: 98.1% Pass Rate
- Math 6: 84.6% Pass Rate
Combined Pass Rate of Mr. Leshnick’s students: 90%

This is well above LCPS and state average!

I hold a B.S. degree in Economics and a Virginia Collegiate Professional Teaching License with an endorsement in middle grades math. I am a life-long learner and continue to take professional development coursework to enhance my practice.

Success = Hard work on the part of teachers, students, and parents.

ROAR

Students are expected to show respect, take ownership, achieve, and be responsible. What this looks like in the classroom will be reinforced throughout the year. This should help assure all students have an opportunity to excel.

The step from elementary school to middle school is HUGE – allow time for students to adjust to their new way of life.

Math class is every other day, but has content rich 90-minute blocks. Students should plan to attend everyday to maximize instruction and learning.

The students should record important dates in their agenda. Classwork and homework assignments will be posted on my web page on the L.C.P.S site.

Testing Policy

Grade BreakdownSummative Assessments 100%Retake Policy:If students get an A, B, or C on a summative assessment, they do not have to retake it. If they get a D or F on a summative assessment, they must retake it.

- Formative assessments are assessments FOR learning. These assessments take place on a frequent basis in order to help guide learning. They are graded on the following scale: Advanced Proficient (4), Proficient (3), Intermediate (2), and Beginner (1).

- Assigned each class
- See homework and pacing guide on calendar on webpage.
- Goal: Smart Score 70-100 and 60 min. minimum usage per week. When students have completed assigned skills, they can work ahead, work on skills of interest to them at or above grade level, or work on skills giving them difficult.
- Skills should be completed as assigned, and before date of assessment covering skills.

Math 6

Math 6/7

If you receive an A, B, or C, you may retake the assessment.

If you receive a D or F, it is mandatory to retake the assessment.
