Mr. Mike Leyland
Mr. Leyland graduated from SUNY Buffalo State College with a Bachelor of Science in Secondary English Education in 2006. He taught middle and high school English for a few years in Upstate New York , before pursuing a Master's degree in Library Science from SUNY Buffalo. In 2010, after receiving his MLS, he moved to Charleston, South Carolina to work as a media specialist at Liberty Hill Academy in North Charleston. From there, he decided to take a once in a lifetime adventure to China, where he served as a library media specialist with International Baccalaureate Schools in Guangzhou, Qingdao, and Foshan. Most recently, he was a long term substitute Media Coordinator at East Carteret High School. He also has experience working in public libraries.
Mr. Leyland is thrilled and thankful to be a member of the Grizzly family.
When he's not in a school library, he enjoys going to the beach with his wife and kids, reading books, eating pizza, and watching basketball and football.
