Happy November! Thank you for the warm welcome; I am so excited to join the Independence Inc. team. My name is Carly Leffelman, and I am the new Youth Transition Specialist. Working with middle school and high school aged students has always been in my future plans. It was my dream to do something extraordinary in a classroom, and Independence Inc. and the school districts I will be working with are allowing me to do just that. The Youth Transition Program has been so much fun to develop, and it’s a blast getting to know the students from all over our service area.
I received my degree from Minnesota State University, Mankato to teach Social Studies to grades 5-12. My fiancé and I moved to Minot from Minnesota in June and we are planning a wedding for next summer. What an exciting year!
