My name is Leslie Boston and I teach language arts and social studies on the 5th grade dyad. I'm originally from Chicagoland but I love everything about Arizona and the Gilbert community. Before relocating, I taught in Carol Stream, Illinois for 16 years and have experience teaching 2nd grade, 4th grade, and 5th grade. I have a Bachelor of Arts in Sociology from the University of Illinois and a Master of Science in Education from Northern Illinois University.
When I’m not in the classroom, I love spending time with my family, preferably doing something outside. My husband and I have two incredible children that both attend schools in Higley Unified School District. We also have a chocolate lab named Hurley. As a family we love playing and watching all sports, traveling, and exploring all Arizona has to offer. I'm looking forward to a great year!
