Mrs. Heather Leonard
My name is Heather Leonard and I am so excited to be working as a Special Education Teacher at Newton School. I was born and raised in Hyattsville, Maryland and I am a graduate of Georgetown Visitation Preparatory High School. After high school I attended The College of Charleston in South Carolina where I graduated with a Bachelor of Science in Special Education. After graduating college, I married my high school sweetheart, had 3 sons, and remained in Charleston for another ten years. In 2007, my husband was offered a job in Fairhope, AL and our family moved here to begin a new adventure. Once we arrived, I soon started working as a substitute teacher and then worked as the Science Lab Teacher here at J. Larry Newton. I have been working as a Special Education Teacher since 2015 and I am so excited to be doing the work that I am so passionate about.
