Leslie recently re-joined the staff at Heronfield Academy in July 2020, after a short time away. She was born in East Boston and attended Boston University on a full, four year scholarship, graduating with a BSBA in Marketing. She worked for many years for the Sisters of Notre Dame de Namur, a teaching order of Catholic nuns. It was during that time, she witnessed the lasting impact that a teacher has on his/her students. It was her secret hope to someday work in an academic environment. When she is not working, Leslie likes to spend time creating her primitive cloth dolls as well as working on punch needle pieces.
