Candace Leikam

Sequoias Extended Day

Candace is excited to be joining the Montessori Community School this year. She spent the last few years helping children and their families recover from addiction and trauma at a private daycare in downtown Salt Lake. Originally from Atlanta, GA, Candace received her bachelor's degrees from Georgia State University, and moved to Salt Lake City in 2011 after falling in love with the beautiful mountains on what was supposed to be a quick vacation. In her time outside of the classroom she enjoys reading, hiking with her dog Behr, going to local farmers markets, and festivals.
