Welcome! My name is Leigh Zepeda, and I am a fifth grade reading/writing, and social studies teacher. This is my 20th year of teaching and I am so proud to say that ALL of those years have been right here at DPE!  Reading and learning about the past are my passions, so I love coming to school every day to share this with my students.  Seeing them become life long learners and readers makes my heart happy.
A fun fact about me is that not only did I grow up in Deer Park, but I also went to Deer Park Elementary and graduated from DPHS.  So, I have a deep commitment to this school and community.... I think I even bleed maroon and gold. :)  I am also a huge Harry Potter fan!
I have been married to my husband, John, who is also a former DPE student and Deer Park Deer, for 24 years  We have three children. Our oldest is Andress, a former Kilgore Rangerette, a graduate of A&M, and she is now working in the college ministry at Grace Bible church in College Station. Plus, she recently got married to a WONDERFUL guy named Joseph. Our middle child, Zoe, is a junior in college studying to be a teacher, and Jakey is our 12 year old who happens to be an amazing golfer. He competed in 18 golf tournaments this summer so we were VERY busy! Our family loves to hang out with each other and play with our sweet mini-goldendoodle, Penelope.
I am so excited for this year!!
