About Leisa

I am an Educator and life-long learner. I love teaching and sharing information. English as a Second Language and Special Education are my passions because I want all students to be successful while being included in the general education setting. Over the past 7 years, I have had the pleasure of being the case manager of over 150 special needs students. I have had 35 students graduate on the regular graduation standards and move on to community colleges and four year colleges.

I teach Pre-Algebra, Algebra I, English I, English II, English III, English IV, US History, Government, and Economics. I challenge students, without overwhelming them. I teach to students strengths. It is wonderful to experience the students’ joy of passing classes in the general education setting and STARR.
