Mr. John Leal


Here is a little about myself. 

I teach 7 and 8 Excel, ELDA, and 6th grade Enlgish. I have taught in Middle School for 14 years; currently in my 15th 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 5 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 2021-22 school year!
