Degrees and Certifications:
Mrs. Leigh Boatwright
I am a graduate of Opelika High School '95. I went to college at Jacksonville State University on a cross country scholarship. I ran all 4 years of college, earning a Gamecock Scholar Athlete Award. I graduated with my Bachelor's degree in Special Education/Hearing Impaired certified preschool through high school in 1999. I started teaching at Jacksonville City Schools. During that time, I completed my master's degree in Elementary Education in '07. We moved to Auburn, AL and I taught at West Smiths Station for four years. I then was able to get a job at Ogletree Elementary for Auburn City Schools, where I taught a self-contained classroom for three years. My husband received a job in Madison, AL and we moved there where I taught for 2 years at Horizon Elementary. We had a great desire to be closer to family. I am so blessed to be an Arabian Knight. I am teaching transition classes for 9th-12th grades.
