Mrs. Kathleen LaCount

Welcome! I have been teaching Special Education at Leyden High School since 2004. I have taught English IV, Literacy, Home Economics, Consumer Education, Health,  Physical Science, US History, and was the Special Education Literacy Facilitator.  My current teaching position at Leyden is a Special Education Instructional Facilitator, which means I support students in their general education classes, Co-lab Facilitator, and Co-teach Civics.  I attended Elmhurst College where I earned my Bachelor's  of Arts Degree (2004), majoring in Special Education. I then pursued a Master's of Arts Degree (2007) from Concordia University in Administration. After that, I continued my education and earned another Master's of Arts Degree (2010) from Concordia University in School Counseling.
