Mrs. Chesnut

Hello! My name is Leah Chesnut.
Although I am new-ish to teaching in NEISD, this is not my first time around here. I am a proud NEISD graduate - MacArthur High School!

This is my 11th year teaching, and I am proud to be back in San Antonio to raise my family. I graduated from Texas Tech University (Wreck 'Em, Tech!), taught in the Lubbock area for a year, and moved from there to DFW where I taught for the next 7 years.

I have taught math exclusively for 10 years, and it is a subject I love and am excited to share with my students. I also teach Crafting 101, a class where students explore different crafty projects! Some projects turn out wonderfully, and some projects are not to be repeated again. :) My hope is that through our crafting class, students learn or are inspired by our classes and find ways to express themselves creatively. 

In my free-time at school, I help coach UIL Maps, Graphs, and Charts; and I co-sponsor Student Council.  ALL students are welcome (and encouraged!) to join either group! If your child needs a place to belong, send them my way!

I am passionate about providing a great education to students in NEISD. If you ever need anything from me, please reach out! My email is my best contact -


My tutoring times are Monday (am & pm) and Friday (am & pm).

6th grade math is double blocked, so my schedule is as follows:
1st: Crafting 101
2nd-3rd: on-level math
4th-5th: honors math
6th: conference/planning
7th-8th: on-level math

UIL and StuCo meeting dates will be announced soon.
