Degrees and Certifications:
Hello, my name is Leon Rogalla. I grew up on a farm in the northwest part of the state near the town of Thief River Falls and lived almost my whole life in Minnesota. The only time I lived out of the state is when I had a teaching job in Guatemala City, Guatemala. I have been teaching at Highland Park Jr. High since 2001. I have taught World Geography for 5 years and have taught U.S. History since 2007 years. I received my undergraduate degree in Social Studies from Moorhead State University and my Masters in Education from Winona State University.
I currently I help out with the after-school program. I'm the co-site lead. I'm the drummer for the in-house teacher band that plays on the last school day of every year for the kids.
My hobbies include camping & hiking, watching the History channel and cooking.
Or, you can call Highland Park Middle School at 651.293.8950.
I hope your children enjoy being in my class as much as I enjoy teaching it.
