I grew up in Mattoon, Illinois and moved to Arizona when I was nine years old. I have lived in Tucson for most of my life. I decide to move to the Queen Creek area about six years ago. I have been working at San Tan Heights ever since then. I have a Bachelor’s degree in Education and I received that degree from the University of Arizona. This is my 21st year teaching and my third year teaching sixth grade. Before that I taught K, 1st, 4th grade and was a reading specialist for two years. I have a 27-year-old son and three fur babies that are the loves of my life. I am a huge animal and nature lover. I enjoy photography, cooking, listening to music, reading and binge watching Netflix. I am also a big Oakland Raiders fan. In the future I hope to travel more often and see the world.

Hi! My name is Leslie Sorace and I am one of the 6th grade teachers. This is my 10th year here at San Tan Heights. I can’t tell you how happy I am to be a part of the Florence School District and this incredible community. I hold a Bachelor’s Degree in Psychology with an endorsement in Gifted Education. I have also been part of Student Council for the past 10 Years and am proud to be the Advisor for the school again this year. I have two beautiful children; Haley, who is 21 and attending college to become a Veterinarian, and Gavin who is 15 and started his sophomore year in High School. I love to play sports, read, and spend time with my kids. I look forward to a fantastic 2017-2018 school year!
