Welcome to Middle School Religion!

Hello St Joseph Middle School Parents and Guardians!
Mucho gusto!
This will be my fourteenth year at St. Joseph and my third year as Middle School Religion, following a year of teaching Fifth Grade ELA. 
I am happy to be returning to my favorite subject to teach: Religion!
Some background about myself: I am from the Pine Ridge Indian Reservation in South Dakota. I have a Bachelors of Science in Elementary Education from Chadron State College in Nebraska. I've taught in South Dakota, New Mexico, Nebraska, and Colorado.  I've lived and taught in El Paso for over twenty years and I LOVE IT!  The warm weather and delicious food matches the warmth of the residents!
I am a Mother to four and a grandmother to three, and a teacher to more children than I can count.
I am blessed beyond measure.
I look forward to another blessed year with your child.
~Mrs. Leona Jewett
