Meet Mrs. Yvette Leos

Hello! I am extremely blessed that I received a phone call to teach here at St. John Paul II High School which is the reason I have been here for going on 16 years. On a personal note: I am married and I have four children and two grandchildren, my youngest child is 13 years old. My Passion for being an English teacher comes from my love of reading and writing. 
"Faith is the reality of what we hope for, the proof of what we don't see." -Hebrews 11:1

Education/ Certification

  • I have a Bachelor of Arts with teacher certification.
  • I am certified to teach grades 6-12 English.
  • I am also an ESL-certified teacher. 

Communication Methods

  • I contact parents and students mainly through email.
  • If you ever need information faster, email is the best option.
  • If you need to speak to me, you can contact me during my planning periods (6th & 8th).  


  • As an avid reader, I try to choose novels that I hope my students will enjoy.
  • As a teacher, I love teaching fiction, specifically science fiction.
  • Personally, on my own time, I love fiction as well, but horror is my favorite.
