About Ms. Garceau
Hello Leigh! My name is Laurel Garceau and I am a new Assistant Principal here at Leigh. I attended Chico State for my undergraduate degree where I earned a double major in English and French. I later got my Master of Arts in Teaching at Lewis and Clark College in Portland, Oregon. I taught English and French in Oregon for the first seven years of my teaching career. I moved back to California in 2004 when I got a job at Leigh teaching English and French from 2004-2008. I later moved to Branham High School where I taught French for 8 years. After teaching for 25 years, I am excited for a change to administration.
I met my husband, Roland, while I was teaching at Leigh High School and he was helping with the music program. We had a son, Luka, in 2007 and we all moved to Montreal, Canada for three years. Luka is a freshmen this year at Prospect High School, my alma mater.
I look forward to working with all of the stakeholders of the Leigh Community. This will be a great year!
