Mrs. Leah Jorgensen
This is my 5th year teaching science in Onslow County! I'm so excited to start a new year teaching virtually! Just to introduce myself I grew up in a small town outside of Asheville, NC. I spent a lot of my time hiking exploring the Blue Ridge Mountains. The mountains are where my love for science grew. I also taught at a summer camp for 10 years where I found my passion for teaching. My love of science and teaching is what ultimately led me to become pursue a career in science education. The best way to reach me is through email. Feel free to contact me if you have any questions.
