Degrees and Certifications:
Dr. Leonard J Jurkowski Jr.
I grew up in Southwestern Pennsylvania, in a small town called Mt. Pleasant. After graduating in 1993, I attended Edinboro University, where I recieved a Bachelor's of Arts in Psychology. After working with Autistic students in a school setting, I felt my calling to be a teacher and earned my Master's Degree in Elementary Education from California University of PA. My future wife, Marcie and I then began our teaching carreers in Asheboro N.C, before eventually ending up in Winchester, VA. I worked as a first grade teacher for six years before moving to Berkleley County, WV where I taught sixth grade and Kindergarten for the past ten years.
Marice and I have two beautiful daughters named Keeley Layne (5 years old) and Kiersyn Scott (1 year old). We currently still reside in Berkeley County, WV. However, we are hoping for the time and energy to begin a move back to the Winchester area soon.
Aside from teaching, I enjoy playing hockey and running.
