Leticia Jara-Leake



School Leader and Office Staff

My name is Leticia Jara-Leake and I am the proud principal of Steck Elementary. I have worked for Denver Public Schools for about 20 years. I have taught at different grade levels and have served in DPS in different capacities.

My husband and I have a 15-year-old daughter and a 12-year-old son who keep us busy. Both of our kids play soccer, so the fields are where you will find us most weekends.  We enjoy traveling and we visit family in Paraguay, South America whenever we have an opportunity. We have two adopted pets, Shiloh who is an Akbash and Great Pyrenees mix and a cat named by my son, “Steve” (Minecraft fan).  Steve definitely rules the house.

I enjoy reading professional development materials, watching sports on TV (minus baseball), and exercising by attending group fitness classes when my schedule allows me.  I look forward to meeting all of you this and in the upcoming years.
