Mrs. Leigh Hooks

Hello!!! My name is Leigh Hooks and I teach 5th grade ELA/SS. I'm so thankful to be a part of the Bulldog family. I have been married for 17 years to my best friend and husband, Michael. We have been blessed with three handsome boys: Ryan (16), Nolan (9), and Hudson (3). I graduated from East Carolina in 2004 and have been teaching ever since. Throughout the years, I have taught 4th, 5th, and 6th grades. I'm always looking forward to meeting and working with our amazing students and parents!!






Please email me if you would like to join my ClassDojo and haven't already.
