Mr. John Leonard

Hi!  My name is John Leonard and I will be the teacher for the gifted and talented at Kate Waller Barrett Elementary for the 2022-2023 year.  I am extremely excited to get to know each and every one of our scholars!  I have been a teacher in Stafford County for the past 24 years.  I have had the privilege of teaching children from all different backgrounds and have worked with kids at all grade levels.  My primary teaching grades have been first, fourth, and fifth grade.  I have spent all of my career in South Stafford at Falmouth Elementary and at Conway Elementary.  I can't wait to begin working with each and every scholar at Barrett!  

I have three children of my own.  Andrew will be a sophomore at Stafford High School.  Sarah will be in fourth grade at Conway Elementary.  Abigail will be in second grade at Conway Elementary.  My wonderful wife Julie is also a teacher in SCPS, as she teaches second grade at Conway Elementary.
