Mrs. Debra de Leon
It is with great pleasure that I join the St. Matthias middle school staff. I am very excited for the opportunity to be teaching language arts to 7A, 8A and 8B this school year! Being a teacher is such a privilege; one that I keep near and dear to my heart.
As a Catholic middle school educator for 15 years, I know the importance of these years to the education and development of our students. Students who enter my classroom will experience an educational environment that fosters their strengths and encourages growth in other areas. I believe that each student should be encouraged to keep a positive mindset in every situation and know that they can achieve any goal they set for themselves. Because I know the importance of the development of students at this time, every student I educate knows that from the first day they step into my classroom, they can count on me for support in any facet of their lives. I also know the hard work and dedication that parents contribute to providing a quality Catholic education to their children and hope to continue this goal each and every day their child enters the doors of Saint Mathias.
I am excited for the upcoming school year and seeing all the goals our students in the middle school can reach! Please contact me at anytime during the school year.
Mrs. de León
