Meet Your Librarian

My name is Lori Leal, and I am the librarian at Sunshine Cottage School for Deaf Children. I began serving as the librarian in 2013. I love it here! As I was told when I first started, we really do have the best kids!

Before becoming the librarian at Sunshine Cottage, I was a classroom teacher for 16 years. I’ve taught Kindergarten, 1st grade, 3rd grade, and 4th grade. My teaching career began in Corpus Christi before moving to San Antonio in 2002. From 2002-2013, I was a teacher in Northside ISD. I have a Bachelor of Science in Interdisciplinary Studies from Texas A&M-Corpus Christi, a Master of Education in Administration from Lamar University, and a Master of Library Science from Sam Houston State University.

My husband and I have a very spoiled black cat named Simon. In my free time, I love to READ, visit different restaurants and food trucks around town, spend time with my family and friends, and surf the internet looking for cool websites and iPad apps to use with my students.

If you would like to contact the librarian, please call 210-824-0579, email Mrs. Leal, or just drop by when you’re at school.
