Mrs. LEIGH MITCHELL
I'm a Native Texan who grew up surrounded by the charms of the Texas Hill Country and Pacific blues of Baja California. Offshore fishing adventures with my father naturally stirred my interest in studying Marine Biology at Texas A&M at Galveston and General Biology Southwest Texas State, where I earned my Bachelor's degree.
I enjoy a wide range of outdoor activities such as fishing, camping, swimming, road cycling and hiking. I also love arts and crafts, movies, cooking and traveling. While I love science, I'm also a huge History buff and enjoy traveling to historical places. I have one son who is now in middle school and heavily involved with Scouts. We are definitely a scouting family and are enjoying all the adventures it brings.
My educational certifications include Science 4-8 and History 7-12. I began teaching science in Humble ISD and later moved to teach science and history in CyFair ISD. I'm excited to now be part of the Waller Bulldog family and hope to bring my adventures and life experiences to the classroom to make science fun and exciting. I believe that all students have gifts and talents. In my classroom, I have future engineers, chefs, teachers, olympians, actors, singers, CEO's, artists, mechanics, farmers, world leaders and more. I love discovering my students' interests and gifts and using those to make learning fun!
