Leann grew up in Rosemead, Ca. She accepted Christ into her life at age 12 after being involved in youth group and attending Christian camps. After graduating from high school, she attended Pasadena City College. She graduated with an Associate of Arts Degree. Leann took a break from school and married her husband, Scott. In 1991, they moved to Yucaipa and raised three daughters. Leann and Scott have been married for thirty-one years.
Leann felt the Lord calling her into teaching where she could combine her love of children, love of learning, and love for Christ. She returned to college and attended California Baptist University. She graduated with her degree in Liberal Studies in 2008. While completing her degree, she worked as an instructional aide for Yucaipa-Calimesa School District. She left this job to care for her elderly father who was struggling with Alzheimer’s disease.
In January 2015, Leann felt the Lord again calling her to the classroom. She went to work for Yucaipa Christian Preschool as a Pre-K and T-K teacher. She loved working with the students and getting them ready for Kindergarten. Leann felt the Lord calling her to teach elementary school and feels blessed to join the staff at Wildwood Christian Academy. She is excited to educate students both academically and spiritually, and help strengthen their knowledge and faith in Jesus Christ.
