Leah received the Outstanding Mathematics Teacher Award from the Texas Tech University Department of Mathematics and Statistics in 2010. She currently teaches algebra at Sundown High School where she also serves as the chair of the Math Department.

Leah, originally from Anton, Texas is the daughter of two teachers and realized at a young age the passion that her parents had for their students and the hard work that they put into their teaching. For Leah, the world is made better when we serve each other and she experiences no greater feeling than when she and one of her students work together to accomplish a goal. She has high expectations for her students, but her expectations for herself are even higher. Teaching is not just a job for Leah; it is her passion. Her desire is to pass this passion for learning to her students by challenging them to learn new skills, to seek the truth, and to work hard in order to achieve their goals.
