Greetings! I'm Ms. Leynes, and I am currently in my 5th year of teaching at Cesar E. Chavez High School.  As an Education Pathway and Sociology Instructor, my goal is to enrich and challenge my students to think critically; make personal and real-world connections to content; build a growth mindset; and develop a life-long love for learning.   As the ASB Director, my focus is primarily to lead by example and build a team of kind, efficient, and creative leaders to maintain a postive culture at CCHS.

I am a firm believer that strong parent-teacher communication is essential for student success.  Please feel free to contact me if you have any questions or concerns regarding your student's learning experience.
