Mr. Jim Rossetti

            I began my teaching career at Leyden in the fall of 2005.  Leyden is the only place where I have taught.  Leyden has been very good to me, and I love it here.  In addition to teaching,  I also coach various sports.  I have many fond memories from coaching.  The memories of the wrestling team winning the sectional and reaching the “Elite 8” in 2010 will stay with me forever.  I was fortunate to be part of the soccer team that won the sectional and reached the “Elite 8” in the fall of 2010.  There is no way to describe that playoff run and the fun I had with that group of guys.  Throughout my time at Leyden I have seen great accomplishments in the classroom and on the athletic fields.  I know that with hard work and determination we can make this kind of success the norm.
