Welcome to Mrs. Leyden's page!

    Gentry Jaguars




    Welcome to 7th grade!!!  This is my 32nd year of teaching English and my 21st year at Gentry Middle School.  I am originally from South Dakota and have taught a variety of secondary grade levels in South Dakota, Iowa, and Missouri.  I obtained my degrees in Secondary Education and English at Mount Marty College in Yankton, SD and earned my Masters at William Woods University.

    I have been married for 33 years, have four children, two sons-in-law, one daughter-in-law, two grandchildren, 4 granddogs, and 3 grandcats.
    In my spare time I enjoy reading anything that I can get my hands on.  I especially enjoy young adult fiction.
