Congratulations to Fairmont Preparatory Academy teacher, Ms. Jaya Leslie, for being selected as one of OC Parenting magazine's top teachers of Orange County. Read her feature article below:
Jaya Leslie - “Teaching biology is my passion. My goal is to sustain my students’ sense of wonder while teaching them how to study the world around them. Being recognized for this work is truly an honor.”
Fairmont Preparatory Academy (Anaheim) – 11th and 12th Grade
Mrs. Jaya Leslie teaches Advanced Placement and International Baccalaureate Biology; Honors Human Anatomy and Physiology; Advanced Placement Environmental Science; and Biomedical Ethics, Research Theory & Experimental Design at Fairmont Preparatory Academy. She engages her students by teaching science concepts using hands-on demonstrations and experiments. She provides exposure to real-world science lab work and research that most students would not experience until college,” said Bob Tran, Fairmont’s Marketing Manager. “She can often be found on campus late into the evening holding office hours and impromptu discussions with students about anything from homework to future career goals. A true academic, Mrs. Leslie earned her B.S. at UC Irvine and her M.S. at Stanford University. She started her career in the field working as a Research Scientist. She sees her knowledge as simply something to share in order to inspire the next generation of learners.
