Mrs. Leslie Rich

I am Mrs. Rich, the Counselor at Jefferson Elementary School. I graduated from Texas Tech University and was a classroom teacher for nine years and taught 4th grade before becoming a counselor. I love using play therapy techniques to help children self-regulate their emotions. It is an honor and privilege to serve students, their teachers, and families in this capacity.

When not at school I enjoy group exercise classes, paddleboarding, kayaking, playing with my cats, and spending time with my family and friends.



  • Hi, I am "Oreo" the Jefferson playground cat. I was found under the bois d'arc tree on September 11, 2019. Thank you Jefferson students and teachers for showing me kindness when I was a kitten. I LOVE YOU!
