Emily Leonard is a third grade teacher in Brookline, Massachusetts and a board certified behavior analyst (BACB-D). She is passionate about empowering students and enjoys working with families to view and manage behavior in a positive way. In the classroom, Dr. Leonard utilizes teaching strategies that provide frequent opportunities for responding to engage students. She uses goal setting, data collection, and differentiated instruction to help students make progress at their own pace and develop ownership over their learning. Dr. Leonard consults privately for families with children with attentional difficulties and non-compliant behavior. She coaches families about behavior strategies and develops individual systems to help students work towards behavioral goals. Dr. Leonard provides tutoring services in the areas of math, writing and executive function and organization over the summer and rarely during the school year. She currently has limited tutoring availability. She also teaches part time at Simmons University in the Behavior Analysis department.
Beyond the classroom, Emily enjoys time with her family, running, cooking, traveling, and reading. She lives in Milton with her husband and her energetic, three-year old daughter, Ava. She has a younger brother in San Fransisco, sister in Denver and parents who are retired teachers in Vermont.
