Mrs. Leah Fuqua
I am the Literacy Coach and Assistant Principal at BMS and I am in my fourteenth year in the education field.My husband and I live in the McCall community on a small farm with our nine year old daughter, Emma Grayce. Emma Grayce loves to twirl her baton and play outside with our animals. I enjoy spending time with my family and friends, decorating, cooking, and traveling.
I graduated from Scottsboro High School in Scottsboro, AL in 1998. I completed my Bachelor’s of Science in Collaborative Education (K-6 Special Education) at Auburn University in December 2000. I completed my Master’s of Education in Early Childhood Special Education at Auburn University Montgomery in December 2001.
I was hired by the Escambia County Board of Education for the remaining 2001-2002 school year as a certified substitute in a long-term placement. For the first three months, I was in a special education classroom and for the remaining three months, I taught a 6th grade Math class. I learned a great deal during those six months. I also married Brewton-born Dennis Fuqua during my summer vacation. As the 2002-2003 school year began, I took a new position as the Dean of Students and Special Education Services for a small charter school in Pensacola, FL--Beulah Academy of Science. In February of that year, I was given the opportunity to teach closer to home. I accepted a position at Escambia County Middle School in Atmore, AL as the special education teacher. For the 2003-2004 school year, I transferred to Pollard-McCall Junior High School to be the special education teacher. I taught special education at Pollard-McCall Junior High School for twelve years. I completed my Administrative Certification in Educational Leadership from the University of South Alabama in December 2014.
I am truly enjoying working with the dedicated staff members of Brewton Middle School and getting to know the precious children of BMS. It is our hope to ignite the joy of learning within each child who walks through our doors because everyone learns everyday.
