My name is Leigh Mayfield. I began my education career in 2010, teaching reading and special education to middle schoolers in Prince George's County, Maryland. When my family relocated back home to Tennessee in 2016, I began working as an outreach educator for the Creative Discovery Museum, and in 2018 I went back into the classroom full-time as a teacher of the gifted for Hamilton County. 

Prior to teaching, I spent more than a dozen years working in marketing, public relations, and communications for organizations as diverse as AutoZone, Habitat for Humanity International, and the University of Tennessee. I have a B.A. in English/creative writing from Rhodes College and an M.S. in teacher leadership from Quinnipiac University. 

When I'm not working with my fun and funny students on brain-expanding projects, I love hiking, yoga, reading, cooking, and traveling with my husband, daughter, and cat.
