Our Team at Gold Mountain Community School

Leeanne Noble

Leeanne Noble is the Owner and Lead Teacher at Gold Mountain Community School. She has been teaching and learning from children for over 30+ years. She has cared for infants, toddlers, preschoolers, school-aged kids, and children with special needs in a variety of educational settings.  She has a B.S. in Elementary Education, years of special training in child development and early childhood education, is a member of the National Association of the Education of Young Children (NAEYC), and works as a trainer for the Idaho Stars program. She continues to read books and journals and attend workshops and conferences with the sole mission of understanding how children learn so she can provide them with the best learning experiences possible.

I believe children deserve the very best childhood experiences. They deserve opportunities to explore and discover, to get messy, to climb and tumble, to struggle and succeed, and to follow their ideas and passions.  They need loving adults who are nearby to help and comfort, who read stories and sing songs, and who see children as real people with real feelings and needs.  Children need the space and time to do the very important work of childhood, which is play: the simple process of interacting with people and things to figure out how it all works.  I have created Gold Mountain as a gift to my community and a place where we can all learn, grow, share and play.
