Hi! My name is Lea Canon. I was born and raised in Aztec, New Mexico, but I moved to Valencia County in 1988. My husband, Wayne, and I have been married since 1988, and we have three children. Our oldest child is a NMSU graduate, and our two youngest children are currently attending school there. I guess you could call us an Aggie Family! In my spare time, I enjoy gardening, working with livestock, scrapbooking, and spending time with family.
This is my 19th year as a teacher at La Merced. Fifteen of these years have been in Kindergarten, but I have also taught 1st and 2nd grades. I received a Bachelors degree from NMSU in 1985, my teaching certification from UNM in 1998, and a Masters Degree from the College of Santa Fe in 2009. I currently hold a K-8 Level III teaching licensure.
