Mr. John Leal
Here is a little about myself.
I teach 7 and 8 AVID and AVID Excel Electives I taught in Middle School for 13 years; currently in my 14th school year. I spent many years in school to pursue learning opportunities both in education and outside of it. I have a Master of Education in Secondary Education, and a Bachelor of Arts in History.
I have two beautiful daughters- 2 and 1-, who keep me on my toes, and a loving wife of 4 years.
I have an affinity for all things creative. I spend many creative hours drawing, writing, and reading all sorts using a variety of mediums that allow me to share my talents with others.
I enjoy reading most genres but seem to read fantasy, sci-fi, and historical fiction more. Some of my favorite novels are Ender's Game, Dragon and the Thief, and Wolf by Wolf.
Since I was younger, I have always enjoyed comics. I read a variety of series from many different publishers; particularly, Ninja Turtles, Usagi Yojimbo, and Transformers.
I look forward to the 2020-21 school year!
