Lesley Smith joined The Franklin Academy in 2015, formally St. Paul’s Academy. She was born in San Diego, California.  For the first 18 years of life, she lived with a native Spanish speaker.  This was the starting point of her teaching career.  She graduated from Seattle University with a degree in Spanish, later moving to Bellingham to complete a Master’s degree in Education.  She has taught at the Franklin Academy for the last four years and is very excited to be part of the community once again. She finds the energy here contagious and hopes to inspire her students to love the Spanish language and culture.  Also, she wants to inspire students to travel abroad. She is a dedicated wife and mother.  With her free time, Lesley enjoys spending time outdoors.
