My name is Leona Sibley. I am from Jamaica, Long Island, New York. I graduated from the Edinboro University of Pennsylvania with a Bachelor of Science degree in Arts and Science Social Sciences and I earned my Master’s degree from Boston University in Elementary Education. I have been teaching at California Military Institute for seventeen years. I teach Math, Science, Language Arts, Social Studies, Opportunity Elective, and Military Science. I am the Head Track and Field and Cross Country Coach. I served one year as the 320th Battalion Advisor and two years as the BSU Advisor.  

I enlisted in the United States Marine Corps and served 6 years of active duty and I served one year in the Marine Corps Reserve. I am a Captain in the California Cadet Corps and a member of the 9th Brigade Staff as a Support Officer. I have also served as a Survival Instructor, Officer Candidate School, Non-Commissioned Officer Academy Instructor, and Senior Leadership Academy Instructor. 

In my leisure time, I enjoy reading, puzzles, scrabble, arts and crafts, and bike riding with my husband, David who is also a teacher at CMI. We have been married for over 34 years. He retired from the United States Marine Corps after 30 years of faithful service. I have a daughter, Melody, and a son, Jonathan, and four adorable grandchildren. 

I look forward to connecting with you and your family as we share this new 2023-2024 school year together. This year's class information will be located in Canvas. We will also use Google Classroom. Please reach out to me via email at Together we will progress forward. CMI means Come to Make an Impression!!!
