Mrs. Pope

Hello! My name is Leslie Pope, and I have been in education since 1999. Besides having been a general classroom teacher for most of my career teaching grades 2-6, I've also been an Instructional Coach, STEAM Specialist, Media Coordinator, and most recently, a district Instructional Technology Facilitator where I served 4 schools. I'm a Google for Education Certified Trainer, so I love to help with all things Google! With all of that being said, I will be Princeton Elementary's Technology Facilitator and STEAM Teacher this year. I look forward to a great year of learning and growing with everyone!
