Biography

Dr. Patty LeBlanc was born and raised in the great state of Texas and still considers it home, even after spending more than 30 years in Florida! She was a classroom teacher for 10 years in Texas and Mexico and then moved to Miami to work on her doctorate at the University of Miami. After completing her degree, she took a few years off to raise two beautiful and brilliant daughters while teaching part time at the University of Miami, Florida International University and Florida Atlantic University. She returned to full-time teaching in the College of Education’s graduate education division at Barry University. While there, she wrote and was awarded a $600,000 grant from the U.S. Department of Education for infusing technology across the K–5 curriculum in Dade County Public Schools. That project won statewide recognition as an exemplary initiative in math, science and technology.

In 1997, Dr. LeBlanc moved to Celebration, Florida, with her family and taught in the graduate education program at Stetson University. She also wrote, received and administered a $2 million federal grant for assisting faculty to prepare pre-service teachers to use technology effectively in their teaching.

Dr. LeBlanc has served at Southeastern University since the fall of 2004. In spring 2012, Dr. LeBlanc received the SEU Excellence in Scholarship Award for her research on Outcomes of Christian Education, a collaborative project with Cardus, Notre Dame University, Boston University, Trinity Western University, Covenant College and Redeemer University College.
