Ms. Lesley C. Wood

It is my pleasure to say that I have been employed with the Harnett County School System for 24 years.  In that time, I spent 20 years teaching sixth grade math and science at Dunn Middle School and the remainder of my years of service have been here at The Academy at Lillington and Harnett Central High School.  I currently serve in a hybrid role, as Success Coach for the Harnett Central attendance area as well as high school facilitator for The Academy at Lillington.  I am a certified K-6 instructor and also have certification in Academically Gifted Instruction.  I truly enjoy my current position(s) as it is extremely rewarding to see students attain the requirements needed to graduate from the high school setting.  It is my hope that all students I work with find value in the educational process and possess an understanding of how important education, namely the high school diploma, is in determining their future successes.

On a more personal note, I am engaged to be married in the near future and I have two wonderful sons (Garrett, 23 and Carter, 21) as well as two awesome soon - to - be stepchildren (Logan 19, and Abbie, 18).  I enjoy spending time with family and friends, working in my yard, and cooking for those I love so dearly.  I also enjoy thrifting, vintage dishes and glassware, and spending time at the beach.  

If I can be of assistance to you or your family in any way, please do not hesitate to reach out to me so that we can work together to formulate a viable plan for success regarding obtaining the needed requirements for graduation purposes.  I am here to help and look forward to working with you to achieve your goals!
