2nd Grade


My name is Mrs. Simpkins.  You may know me as Ms. Leslie.    I enjoy hiking, camping, backpacking, fishing, reading, traveling, and hanging out with friends and family.  I have twin 1 year olds.  I love being a mom!!


This will be my 8th year teaching at Dos Rios!  I graduated in 2007 from the University of Wyoming with my bachelor’s degree in elementary education.  I graduated from UNC with my master’s degree in teaching diverse learners with a duel endorsement in special education and culturally and linguistically diverse learning.


I have a passion for STEM (science, technology, engineering, and math).  This year your child will participate in multiple STEM activities that will help develop his or her critical thinking skills.  Students will also be working on becoming global citizens.  In the spring, third grade students will be taking the literacy and math CMAS tests.
