Mr. Leighton


My name is Cory Leighton and I am the Student Support Services department chair. For the past two years, I have been working at Carlsbad High School as a teacher and case manager. I began my career as a Special Education teacher in Brooklyn, New York, where I also taught Algebra and Economics and served on the Advisory Committee. My true entry into the world of Education took place on the soccer field. I have had the opportunity to coach some great teams at the high school and club level. I am looking forward to beginning an excellent career as a Bobcat!
