Leah Laurent, ELL Teacher Room 311


My name is Leah Laurent and this is my 12th year in MPS, but my first year at Roosevelt High School!

I was born and raised in Minneapolis and attended Minneapolis Public Schools k – 12, attending Jefferson, Emerson, and Southwest High School.  I went to UW-Madison and studied Latin American Studies and Spanish.  Then I returned to Minneapolis and got my Masters in Second Languages and Cultures and teaching licenses in EL and Spanish.  Right after grad school, I moved to Zihuatanejo, Guerrero, Mexico and taught English as a Foreign Language to grades 6 through College Freshman.  After two years, I came back to Minneapolis and started work at Anwatin Middle School and stayed for the past 11 years. I’m really excited to be at Roosevelt this year!

In my time away from school, I love to travel, read, and cook.  I also like to be outside in the sun with my husband, daughter, and dog.

I look forward to working with you this year! Please reach out!
