Bio

Coach Leatherwood started teaching at Chapel Hill Middle School in 1998. His class is a "hands-on" and interactive learning experience. He utilizes a teaching program developed by James Hollister called Living through History. This program puts the students into history quite literally. The students live through American and Georgia history and develop an understanding of how the history of America and Georgia evolved because they actually experience it in the class on a daily basis.

Coach Leatherwood stays busy teaching, enjoying his family, and coaching. He married his wife Robyn in 1999. They love spending time with their two daughters, Carly and Casey. Coach Leatherwood and his wife also coach the Lady Cats Soccer team.
