The School District of Lee County is proud to announce that one of our teachers is the Florida School Health Association (FSHA) Health Educator of the year.

Leisha Roy is being honored for her work in school health and prevention. She teaches 7th and 8th grade health at Gulf Middle School. “We are very, very proud of her,” says Gulf Middle School Principal Dr. Michelle Cort-Mora.

Leisha’s program to give selected students an education infant simulator is considered one of the highlights of her 8th grade class. The students take the doll home over a weekend to learn what it is like to take care of a baby.

School Board Member Mary Fischer is among those offering her congratulations. “Leisha has been a key player in our district Health Education for some time, and has contributed her time and energy selflessly. Please join me in congratulating Leisha for this notable achievement!”

Leisha will be presented with her Health Educator of the Year Award at the FSHA Annual Conference on April 27th in Orlando.
