Associate Principal of Administrative Services

Leonard Jones

Leonard Jones was raised in Stockton, CA by a single mother with 5 other siblings. He is a proud product of Edison High School. He attended three different colleges before completing his his first degree at Arkansas State University. There he received both his BSE in Social Science and MSE in Special Education Instructional Specialist K-12. Leonard states the reason he became an educator was because throughout his educational journey he had encountered only one Black Male and knew that the system needed more to truly invoke the change we want to see. 

He began his teaching career in West Memphis Arkansas teaching 8th grade world history. He eventually relocated back to California were he taught 12th grade Government/Economics. Throughout his education career he has worn the title of not only teacher but Black Student Union/Class Advisor, Equity Team Leader, Student Advisor, Summer School Coordinator, and even Dean of Student for a short period of time. His favorite quote that guides him daily is,  "Hard work beats talent, when talent doesn't work hard." He is excited to join the Eagle Family and embark on this new journey.
