John Leistler

John Leistler joined King's Academy in 2007 as head of the Department of History and Social Studies. He was awarded the Sheikh Salman bin Hamad Al-Khalifa Distinguished Chair in the Theory and Practice of Knowledge in 2009, and in 2011 he was appointed Dean of Curriculum and Instruction before taking on the position of Dean of Faculty in 2012. While mentoring faculty, especially working with younger teachers, is a joy, John continues to be most dazzled and humbled by the work in the classroom with adolescents.
