Leslie began teaching in 1991 and joined the FPDS staff in 2010. “I feel so very blessed that God opened the doors for me to be able to teach at FPDS,” she says. “I love my fellow teachers, the administration, the parents and the students because they make it a pleasure to come to work each day.” She is married to John Buckley from Clinton, and they have one daughter, Katie, who graduated from FPDS in 2014. “As a teacher I love that I am able to talk about Jesus with my students, pray with my students and pull Scripture into my lessons. As a parent, I am thankful that my child has had the opportunity to have these same experiences in her years here at FPDS.” The Buckleys attend Meadow Grove Baptist Church. A native of Brandon, Leslie enjoys scrapbooking, and reading.
