Leslie Maples

I am a native of Huntsville. I attended Highlands and Mountain Gap Elementary, then continued on to Mountain Gap Middle. I graduated from Grissom before attending UAH for my undergraduate degree in Elementary Education. I pursued my graduate studies at Samford University, where I completed my Doctorate in Instructional Leadership.
My husband Craig and I have a one-year-old daughter, Emma. With the arrival of our son Cooper in November, our family will be complete. In our spare time, we enjoy traveling and listening to bluegrass music.
I am blessed to be starting my third year at Awesome Dawson! We look forward to another wonderful year with our amazing students, staff, and families. It truly takes a village!
