Hello, My name is Katy Leenerts and I am your student's history teacher or AVID teacher. This is my sixth year at O'Farrell.  I am a San Diego native and graduated from UC San Diego with a B.A. in History. I also received my teaching credential from San Diego State.  In my free time I enjoy running, cooking, and travelling. I also love spending time with my family and friends.

In order to be successful in my class, students need to make sure that they practice respectful behaviors and interactions with each other. As long as students are willing to respect every member of the community, they will truly get the most out of their learning experience.   

Students can see the agenda in class each day by clicking on the link to their class title (to the right of this intro). They can check work in the class by clicking on the appropriate class on the links below.

If you have any questions, please feel free to contact me by email at or by telephone at 619.263.3009 x 4105. 

Here's to a great school year! 

Katy Leenerts
