Mrs. Leah Caldwell

      I, Leah Caldwell, am a high school teacher at Sulphur High School 9th Grade Campus (SHS9) for the Calcasieu Parish School Board (CPSB). The 2020-2021 school year is my fourteenth year with the parish and as a teacher.  I currently teach English as a Second Language (ESL) for all CPSB high school English Language Learners (ELs) on the west side of the Calcasieu River. I have been teaching ESL at SHS9 for the last 5 years. Before SHS9, I taught several subjects throughout my nine years at DeQuincy High School. Those subjects included English II, English III, English IV, World History, Publication I, and Publication II. I hold a Bachelor of Science degree from McNeese State University with a focus on English Education grades 7th-12th and a secondary teaching field in Social Studies. I also have an ESL teaching certification from the University of Phoenix. I enjoy being in the classroom and currently do not see myself in any other role in education. I love watching EL students grow in their language development throughout their time in the parish’s ESL programI also enjoy collaborating with my students’ core teachers on strategies and lesson modifications to support our Els in all their classes.
