Leslie ReneeDean of Instruction
My name is Leslie Renee. I serve as the Dean of Instruction at BHA. My job is to ensure that the students here receive the best instruction possible, so that they can succeed in college and in life.
I have 3 awesome children, who are now adults, and 2 adorable grandchildren.
I was the first female in my family to graduate from college. I have been a lifelong learner, earning my first degree, an AA in Social Sciences at Chabot College in Hayward, and then my BA in Human Spirituality at CSUEB. I earned my teaching credential at College of Holy Names in Oakland. Later, I earned a M.S. Ed. from Walden University, and then a doctoral degree, Ed. S. in Leadership of Curriculum and Instruction, from University of Phoenix.
I taught English Language Arts and Social Studies to secondary students of all grade levels until 2015, then I served as an Assistant Principal, and then as Regional Instructional Coach for Humanities at Aspire Central Valley. I also taught online teacher education courses at University of Phoenix for 5 years.
When I am not working, I ride my horses or play golf with my husband and father. I am so proud to be a member of this educational community, and to work toward College for Certain for all of our students!
