My name is Stuart Leitzell and I am a 3rd grade teacher at Spring Creek Elementary. I was born and raised in State College and graduated from State High in 1995.   Upon graduating high school, I enlisted in the United States Air Force and was stationed in Great Falls, Montana where I was a firefighter. 

    I have had the pleasure of being part of the school district for the past 16 years.  This will be my 14th year teaching 3rd grade at Spring Creek. I have taught 1st grade at Lemont and I also have taught Title I reading and math at Houserville, Gray's Woods and Radio Park Elementary schools.  In December of 2006, I graduated from Lock Haven University earning a degree in Elementary Education.  In 2002, I earned a degree in Human Development and Family Studies from The Pennsylvania State University.  Growing up in State College, I know how important education is and I enjoy developing students into life long learners.

    I enjoy playing golf, reading, and spending time with my wife Brigitt, son Cooper, our dogs Chewie (labradoodle) and Sophie (dachshund).

    I believe that for learning to take place it takes a great team.  I consider you, the parent, an integral part of this team.  I look forward to working with your child throughout the school year.

    If you have any questions or concerns feel free to contact me at school or sal13@scasd.org.

    Thank you for your time and I look forward to meeting all of you.
