Mrs. Kara Leitza

I have been with District 34 since 2002 and began at Hillcrest Elementary School.  During the 2014-2015 school year, I split my time between Hillcrest and Antioch Elementary School and the following year decided to work full time at Antioch Elementary School.  During the 2019-2020 school year, I will be full time at Hillcrest again! Prior to working in District 34, I was a teacher at Peppermint Stick Pre-School and also worked as a Prevention Specialist with Nicasa.  

I am a lifelong resident of Antioch and enjoy working in this community!  My husband Mike is a physical therapist and has a clinic in Fox Lake.  We are the proud parents of three amazing (and busy) kids - our oldest son will be a freshman at NYU, and my two youngest (junior and freshman) will be attending Antioch Community High School.  Our family is always busy with many activities, including hockey, band, and traveling, when we can squeeze it in to our schedule!
