Degrees and Certifications:

Mrs. Leslie Korinek



I am thrilled to be at Cox Mill Elementary School for my seventh year.  This is my twenty-second year teaching.  I have taught second, third, fourth, and fifth grades over the years.  I received my Elementary Education degree from Appalachian State University and my Masters in Reading Education from East Carolina University.  I am also a National Board Certified Teacher.


My husband Barry works at TIAA and we have lived in Winding Walk for almost thirteen years.  We have two children Madeline (10th grade at Cox Mill High School) and Carson (7th grade at Harris Road Middle School).  Over the summer, I was able to travel to the beach a few times and visit with my family.  I am a huge Carolina Panther fan!  I just love working and living in the Cox Mill community.
