Olivia Leftwich will begin her first year at St. Patrick School as the Elementary Spanish Teacher.
Ms. Leftwich is from Greenville, SC and has been living in Louisville for 2 years now. She moved here after graduating from Centre College in 2015 with a BA in English Literature and a minor in Spanish. Immediately following college she entered into an AmeriCorps VISTA program at the Backside Learning Center here in Louisville, KY- a nonprofit organization geared towards helping/providing resources for the Latino population of workers at Churchill Downs. She pursued certification in the art of Translation and Interpretation, but came to find that teaching and being in the classroom was her passion.
She comes to us from a kindergarten assistant position at Saint Mary Academy. Ms. Leftwich has been a swimmer for the majority of her life and was a member of the Centre College swim team. She is very excited to be a member of the St. Patrick family and is looking forward to the coming year.
