Mr. Ledden says “For the past four years I have had the pleasure of working with the Prince William County Schools in the Plans, Permits, and Records department as an engineer." There he was able to support the faculty and staff with “knowledge of construction, materials, as well as facilities services and systems design.”
Acknowledging that his work goes beyond the practical day-to-day running of a school building, Mr. Ledden says “I work to enrich the lives of those around me. It brings me great joy to know that my work and knowledge may enhance those I interact with.” Mr. Ledden says that his work at JH Classical Academy will “enhance the environment for both students and staff.”

Mrs. Ledden is excited to join the JH Classical community. During their visit to the school, Mrs. Ledden said, “I was shown a mission that I am excited to be a part of.” She believes that classical education “is an effective method of teaching because it allows students to think for themselves and help improve the lives of others.”
