Ms. Karen Leitenberger
My name is Mrs. Karen Leitenberger and I am thrilled to be your teacher this year! This is my fourth year teaching in Biloxi, it is my 14th year teaching in Mississippi. I previously taught in Long Beach as a gifted teacher for 6 years, and an interventionist for 3 years. I received my bachelor’s degree in Pre-law at the University of West Florida, my master’s degree in Elementary Education from William Carey University, my specialist in Educational Leadership from the University of Southern Mississippi, and I am currently pursuing my PhD in Research at the University of Southern Mississippi. I have two wonderful sons that are both attending Mississippi State University. I have a passion for animals and traveling! My favorite place to visit is my homeland of South Africa where I grew up.
I love learning and teaching! I look forward to getting to know all of you, and I know we will have an exciting adventure this year!
