Mrs. Leigh Hooks

Hello!!! My name is Leigh Hooks and I teach 5th grade ELA/SS. I'm excited to be a part of the Bulldog family. I have been married for 16 years to my best friend and husband, Michael. We have been blessed with three handsome boys: Ryan (15), Nolan (8), and Hudson (2). 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!!

  • ACCESS testing for English Language Learners

    North Carolina schools are required to administer ACCESS for ELLs 2.0 to all students identified as English Learners (ELs) in the spring of each year to determine their progress in learning English. Each student is tested in four areas: Listening, Speaking, Reading, and Writing. This assessment helps us monitor their English language development.
