Saint Paul Public Schools
Leslie is the District Library Services Supervisor for Saint Paul Public Schools, the largest school district in Minnesota. She began her education career as a teacher of Spanish, Bilingual Education, and ESL, teaching for many years at the secondary level. Around the turn of the century, in search of new adventures, she became a school librarian. A fierce advocate of digital equity for all students, Leslie was a member of the SPPS E2T2 Technology Integration Initiative team, and worked as a digital literacy specialist with corrections and alternative programs. She served as the 2008-09 president of the Minnesota Educational Media Organization, co-wrote the Research Project Calculator, and has presented on a variety of topics locally and nationally. In her off hours, Leslie cooks, plays tennis, reads, runs, travels, and tries to keep up with her four (soon to be six) grandchildren.
