Mrs. Leslie Hawkins

I am the media specialist at West Lenoir Elementary School. Here at West Lenoir, I am the Elementary Battle Of the Books coach for fourth and fifth graders. Students must read 15 chapter books and then compete in March at the county level. Three years ago, we started the "It's Free to Read" Book Store that is housed in our Media Center. It is a book swap program and the students love it!!
