    About me

    Hi, My name is Panna Leatherby,  潘娜 in Chinese. My students usually call me 潘老师 Pan Laoshi  I am originally from Baoji, China. I came to the United States in 2007 for my graduate studies at Iowa State University in Applied Linguistics. I worked as a high school Mandarin Chinese teacher for seven years and developed one of the best Chinese programs in Iowa. This is my fourth year at Higley and I am excited to work with our students to prepare them to be global leaders. We have two children Adam is six and Claire is four. We live in Gilbert and we are excited to explore our new life adventure with all of you.
