The retirements of Ed Adams (English) and Grafton Brown (Spanish) left two openings on the Leo faculty, and our expanding enrollment created a need for two additional hires, so four new teachers have joined the Leo faculty for the 2018-19 school year.

Mr. Carlos Guillen will assume Mr. Brown’s duties as head Spanish teacher. Ms. Iyabo Williams joins Mrs. Latifi’s math department. Ms. Ashley Tabernacki has been hired as a science teacher, with a specific mission to grow and expand Leo’s STEM curriculum. Ms. Sarah Johnson will teach English and assist Mr. Bill Figel with the Journalism/News Literacy program.

Ms. Tabernacki is the daughter of Mrs. Lydia Tabernacki, who came to Leo last year to teach Theology and serve as our Campus Minister. The Tabernacki menfolk went to Mt. Carmel, but the Tabernacki’s are becoming quite the Leo family.
