  • GOOGLE CLASSROOM: Welcome to our new online version of learning! I already have a google classroom set up and have been using it with some of the students that were able to get access this week.  We have been pretty successful, but it is a learning curve for all of us!

    Students MUST sign in with THEIR school email.  Just like they would sign in at school. I currently have 29 out of our 44 who have my classroom set up.

    Google Classroom code for the students not yet set up: sb27jc5

Mrs. Leslie Smith

Welcome to 4th grade!  I am excited to be your teacher for ELA and Social Studies this year!  I am teaming with Mrs. Fried who will be teaching Math and Science.

I am originally from Ohio and graduated from The Ohio State University with a B.S in Human Ecology. I am currently working toward upgrading from a  temporary teaching certificate to the permanent teaching certificate-yay!  I have lived in Florida since 1994 and  Ocala since 2005.  I am married with two children.  My daughter, Lexie, is attending her 2nd year at FSU and my son, Logan, is a junior dual-enrolled at Forest and CF. My husband, Clark, is in the golf business. I have worked in our family golf business and have also worked at Eighth Street Elementary for 5 years as a long term sub, RTI para, and in-house sub. I have spent time in all grade levels and also worked with small groups and interventions.  I have been out of the school system for the past five years managing a golf course for the family, but am thrilled to be back with the kids teaching!

In my spare time, I enjoy visiting my daughter at college, watching her play tennis, going to my son's lacrosse games, shopping for great deals and reading with a good cup of coffee and going to the beach! :)

Parental involvement and support is the key to our student's success! If you haven't already noticed on this website site, I have a homework assignment posted for the PARENTS to do! I will have copies of the assignment at the orientation before school starts and sent home with your students if you were unable to make it for orientation.  This is just a way for me to get your perspective of your child's personality, learning style, likes/dislikes.  I will also be doing getting to know you activities with your children during the first week.  The better I understand your child, the more successful we can be!

If you have any questions, please reach out to me and we can set up a time for a personal or phone conference if it is something that needs to go beyond a check-in email.

 I look forward to meeting and speaking with everyone throughout the year! Go Mustangs!
