Carla De Leon

5th Grade Teacher


I am Mrs. De Leon and this is my 5th year teaching at Aspire Tate Academy. I have been teaching for seven years and am very excited to teach 5th grade ELA this school year.

I graduated from California State University of Long Beach with a Bachelor’s Degree in Liberal Studies and a Bilingual Credential.

Growing up, I was not always sure I wanted to be a teacher, but I did know I wanted to help people.  After high school, I began working as a teacher assistant in elementary schools. I have worked in various schools ever since, and my roles have changed from teacher assistant to special education assistant, substitute, and finally, teacher.

During my off time, I enjoy running and spending time with my family and our three dogs.

Let’s have a great school year!
