Leslie Balthazar

Welcome to ECHS AVID!
This year, I have the honor of teaching the class of 2020 and the class of 2021.  I am so excited about this group because I had the pleasure of being their AVID teacher when they were sophomores.  My goal and desire is to help each student transition to life after high school.  
I am a graduate of Norfolk State University in Norfolk, Virginia where I received a B.S. in Mass Communications/Broadcast Journalism.  I worked in the industry for a short time and needless to say realized that teaching was what I was suppose to do. I received my teaching credentials from University of Houston and Prairie View A&M University in Secondary English.  I taught all grades of Secondary English and actually began my teaching career at KHS 23 years ago as an English Teacher.  I am a native, born and raised in Washington, D.C. Outside of school, I enjoy running, reading, and spending lots of time with my family.
