Francisco Villar, Administrative Director

Francisco Villar during a recent college shirt day at Leeway.

What do you enjoy most about coming to school every day?

I enjoy the people with whom I work. Our program provides a stable, safe, and nurturing learning environment for our students. I am proud to be a part of this school!

Can you give an example of a ‘Little Victory’ you’ve seen a student achieve at Leeway School?

Each day that a student returns to school, ready to learn, is a victory. Each day a student experiences some joy in their day is a victory. I have seen students take those “victories” and use them to motivate themselves to complete their education.

What's something important that you want people to know about Leeway?

Our philosophy is to provide a safe, nurturing environment for our students. Each day begins and new opportunity to have a positive learning experience. Our staff strives to make certain that each student experiences something positive and joyful each day.

Can you describe something special about your team and the school?

Our staff is motivated to “make a difference” in the lives of our students. Many of our staff live in the same areas and have had similar experiences growing up. I can confidently say that our staff is motivated by their ability to be a role model for our students.
