Degrees and Certifications:

Mrs. Leslie Korinek


Welcome to the 2021-2022 school year! 

I am thrilled to be at Cox Mill Elementary School for my eighth year.  This is my twenty-third year teaching.  I have taught second, third, fourth, and fifth grades over the years.  I grew up in Raleigh and 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 fourteen years.  We have two children; Madeline (11th grade at Cox Mill High School) and Carson (8th grade at Harris Road Middle School).  Over the summer, I was able to travel to Colorado and enjoy the beautiful snow-covered Rocky Mountains.  I love to read and typically read over 50 novels a year. I am also a huge Carolina Panther fan!  I just love working and living in the Cox Mill community.
