Teacher - After School
Leon is the 3rd-5th grade After School teacher at Fortress. Hired in 2016, he is passionate about helping children develop and grow into amazing young people. He strives to help kids achieve their goals and accomplish everything they can in life.
Leon is a graduate of the University of North Texas. In 2011, he played college football for the University of Northern Colorado before coming back to Texas.
Leon’s favorite Fortress activity is the annual field trip to a Fort Worth Christian football game every October. He loves combining two of his passions, football and working with kids, into one incredibly fun night!
Leon is from Seattle, Washington and is a huge Seattle Mariners and Seattle Supersonics fan. He has five sisters & one brother. Leon also has a pet turtle whom he’s had for two years . In his spare time, Leon loves to go fishing & camping. Being from the Pacific Northwest, he loves the rain because in Seattle, that’s pretty much all you’ll see outside. When he’s not at Fortress, you can find him watching the Seattle Seahawks or the best college team ever, the Oklahoma Sooners! #BoomerSooner
