My name is Leona Sibley. I am from Jamaica, Long Island, New York. I graduated from Edinboro University of Pennsylvania with a Bachelor of Science degree in Arts and Science Social Sciences and I earned my Master’s degree from Boston University in Elementary Education. I have been teaching at California Military Institute for fourteen years. I teach Science, Language Arts, Military Science, Drill and Ceremonies. I am the Head Track and Field and Cross Country Coach. I served one year as the 320th Battalion Advisor and two years as the BSU Advisor.  

I enlisted in the United States Marine Corps and served 6 years active duty and I served one year in the Marine Corps Reserve. I am a Captain in the California Cadet Corps and a member of the 9th Brigade Staff as a Support Officer. I have also served as a Survival Instructor, Officer Candidate School and Non-Commissioned Officer Academy Instructor. 

In my leisure time I enjoy reading, puzzles, scrabble, arts and crafts and bike riding with my husband, David who is also a teacher at CMI. We have been married for over 32 years. He retired from the United States Marine Corps after 30 years of faithful service. I have a daughter, Melody and a son, Jonathan and four adorable grandchildren.
