Leslie Mattox

Hello!  Welcome to the 5th and 6th Grade Gifted Education Webpage.  

I am Mrs. Mattox and this will be my 20th year teaching.  I have been a gifted teacher for 11 years and it is my passion.  My husband, Jason, and I have lived in the Wetumpka area for over 30 years.  We have two children, Wade and Ava Claire.  One is a senior at Troy University and the other is a junior at Auburn University. 

I enjoy reading, working in the yard with plants, and almost any water activity.  Kayaking, canoeing, swimming, fishing, and boating are just a few of my favorite activities.  

I look forward to starting the new school year and reuniting with my 6th grade students and meeting my new 5th graders.  Please do not hesitate to email me if you should have questions or anything you would like to share.  See you soon!
