Ms. McLeish » Home


Welcome to the 2021-2022 school year! I am Ms. McLeish and I teach Language Arts 3, and Language Arts 1-Honors. I earned my Bachelor of Arts degree in English from California State University of Fullerton and one year after I earned my teaching credential in English from the same university. I also earned two additional teaching credentials: one in Art and one in Introductory Social Science. As of this past spring of 2021, I have earned my Master of Arts Degree in Education from Vanguard University. I love learning and I hope to help students grow in their joy of learning, too! It is my goal for students to achieve great success in each of my classes. I look forward to a wonderful school year!
