Saint Petersburg College (General Studies)
My name is Leslie. I have enjoyed teaching and tutoring for over 15+ years in private schools as well as in the Pinellas County School System. I love to teach and see children and adults excel in areas that they may have difficulty in. I believe that every person has the capacity to learn and succeed and I am dedicated to working with the residents of Pinellas County. I am the founder and CEO of the Storehouse of America Inc. an emergency food pantry and disaster relief organization which has been in operation for over 20 years. Our goal is to meet the immediate needs of our community neighbors that may be facing difficult times in their lives.
