Mrs. Lesli Pate

I am the ART TEACHER at North Central Middle School.  I am also the team leader of the related arts department.  I have been teaching Art since 2004, and started working at NCMS in 2008.  I am a product of Kershaw County schools, graduating from Camden High School in 1998.  I received my Bachelor of Fine Arts degree from Clemson University in 2002 with a focus in ceramics.  In 2004 I received my Master of Arts in Teaching degree from Lander University.

I like to draw and paint, but working with clay is what I enjoy most.  I also take tons of photos, many of my son Levi and my husband.  When I'm home, I like to read, cook, craft, shop online, and watch renovation tv shows.  I am also a huge fan of college football (Go Tigers).
