After graduating college, she moved to South Florida, where she taught kindergarten in the Palm Beach County School District for 8 years.

She has been teaching in the parochial school system for 18 years now, first at kindergarten, and currently in a first grade classroom. Lesley has also taught 2nd and 3rd grade Spanish and 4th grade social studies.
