Instructional Coach

Leslie Thornton Bio

Hello Malvern family! My name is Leslie Thornton and I’m excited to be serving our school community as an instructional coach. I have a wonderful husband named Craig, and we have a 12-year-old son named Anthony, and a 3-year-old daughter named Ryan. During my free time, I enjoy going to the gym, going to church, and spending time with my family. This is my 13th year in education and I have a Bachelor’s degree in Early Childhood Education, a Master’s degree in Elementary Reading and Math, a Specialist degree in Teacher Leadership, and I’m currently seeking my Principal Certification from UNT. I’m looking forward to partnering with the Malvern family!
