Mr. Darren Leonhard
Hello! My name is Darren Leonhard, and I am a first year teacher at Prosper ISD. I am thrilled to be a part of the Prosper community and am very excited to see what my first year of teaching has in store!
I developed my passion for working with individuals with disabilities during my time at the University of Wisconsin La Crosse while obtaining my Bachelor of Science degree in Adapted Physical Education and General Physical Education. My passion for the field continued to grow at Texas Woman's University where I received my Master of Science degree in Adapted Physical education.
It is my goal to help each one of my students become the best version of themselves. Making sure that my students know they can do anything they set their mind to is important. Helping them reach their goals, not just as students, but also as people is what it's all about. When they leave me I want them to have the skills, ability, and confidence to know that they can be and do anything if they are willing to work for it.
