The new school year brings many joys, changes, and a new start. Dr. Wendy Castaneda Leal was assigned to Batesland School for the 2017-2018 School Year. She has a Bachelor's degree in Middle Grades Math & Social Studies from Clayton State University, a Master's Degree in Educational Leadership from Capella University, and a Doctorate Degree in Curriculum & Instruction from Capella University.

She was born in New York City, New York, and during her adolescent years, and was chairperson of NYC's Native American Education Program, Red Hawk Indian Arts Council, and UNITY. She also studied music at OPUS 118, Manhattan School of Music, and Juilliard.

In 2010, she married her husband and they had a child in 2014. Dr. Castaneda Leal enjoys spending time with her family, listening to music, and helping children.
