Mrs. Leah Hembree

I have been the Library Media Specialist at East Lawrence High School since 2005. I began my teaching career at R. A. Hubbard where I taught third grade for three years and served as the Library Media Specialist for an additional three years. I also worked as the Library Media Specialist for two years at Moulton Elementary.  I enjoy planning programs for students and collaborating with other educators.  In my spare time, I like to read, shop, and spend time with my family.
