Hi! My name is Mrs. Leigh Ann Parten. I teach 3rd grade at MAUE. I am married to Steve (28 years). We have three sons, Micah (married to Jillian and they have two girls, Piper and Bella), Noah (who is married to Maddie), and Caleb (most know him by "Sauce"). My husband serves on staff at Pinelake Church in Flowood. I hold a bachelor's degree in Elementary Education from USM, and a M.ED in Dyslexia Therapy from MC. This is my 17th year teaching. I am so thankful to spend my days with the amazing staff and children at MAUE. The mission ahead of us this year is going to be amazing!!
