Jacob Leenerts obtained his Bachelor of Science in Art Education in May of 2019. Although he is new to teaching, he is fully dedicated and passionate about creating an authentic learning atmosphere for he and his students. His art class is not just a place where students will sharpen their visual literacy, it is also where they will grow in character, complex problem-solving, and their ability to persevere through adversity.
Mr. Leenerts grew up in Topeka, KS, but moved to Arizona to experience the different culture of a large city and the adventure of being far from home. As a self-claimed "beginner multi-instrumentalist," he enjoys expressing himself through guitar, drums, and singing just as much as through the visual arts. He is married to his beautiful wife, Claire, and has a 4-month-old baby boy named Oliver.
