Mr. Jason Orna
I am currently a highly-qualified, tenured English/Literacy teacher working at Leyden High Schools District 212. I hold a bachelor's degree in English Secondary Education and two masters' degrees. My most recent master's degree, conferred in 2009, was in School Improvement Leadership with Type 75 certification. In 2006, I completed my Reading Specialist degree with Type 10 certification. Over the past few years, I have furthered my knowledge of pedagogical leadership through becoming a Literacy and Technology Liaison for the district. Additionally, I have aided the district by coaching other departments on how to implement best literacy and technology practices within their classrooms during in-service and institute days. In addition, I helped create curriculum for Leyden's Literacy and English Departments. I am also the Head Boys' Gymnastics Coach for the district.
