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 am blessed to return to the awesome Dawson family for the 2020-2021 year. We are off to a wonderful start!

My husband Craig and I just celebrate the arrival of our daughter Emma in August. She is the light of our life. In our spare time, we enjoy traveling and listening to bluegrass music.
