My name is Leslie Keith, and I have been teaching Science for the past five years, and this is my second year as an Awtrey Viking.  Last year I taught AC and on-level 7th grade Life Science as well as Academic Habits; however, I love earth science!

I am married to my wonderful husband, Blake Keith, who teaches at Hillgrove High School. We have been married for seven years and have a cat named Sparkle.
