Ms. Donna Leslie

Welcome to the 2017-2018 School Year

I graduated from Tupelo High School in 1982. I graduated from Mississippi University for Women in 1985.  I have been teaching in Texas since the fall of '85.  I have taught every grade level: several years in elementary, junior high, and high school.

I have a passion for students that struggle and need to "find" themselves.  It is a privilege to see those students develop and reach potentials that they believed they didn't have. I am now the teacher of the HOPE Academy at Waller High School.  It is a program to help ensure struggling students to achieve their goal of a high school diploma. We help students achieve this goal by providing any assistance necessary to be successful in their endeavors. This program has been implemented at the high school for 10.5 years. We have had the privilege of helping over 3500 students complete graduation since that time. It is a privilege to serve the community in this capacity.

I am available until 5:00  Monday through Thursday. Im at school from 7-3:00 on Fridays.  We work at least 2 Saturdays out of the month and that schedule is available from our counseling center at Waller High School.
