Leilani Duenas

Hello!  My name is Leilani Duenas and I am excited to be here at Steffan Manor Elementary School.  I was born and raised in Vallejo and I recently moved back two years ago from Sacramento.  I've been teaching for five years and I enjoy teaching the students in our community.  You might see me bike riding around town with my family.  We also like to fly kites at the waterfront and eat....a lot.
