Mrs. Lesley Buffkin
My name is Lesley Buffkin and I am currently teaching third grade at Porter Elementary School. I attended San Diego State University and began my teaching career in San Diego County. I taught in California for 15 before relocating to Arizona. I have now been teaching in Arizona for 20 years. I have taught all grades K-6 but most of my career has been in grades 3, 4, and 5. Before arriving at Porter, I taught at Alma Elementary School here in Mesa. I am married and have 4 children and 3 grandchildren. My children attended Booker T. Washington Elementary, Rhodes Junior High and Dobson High School. My 2 youngest children attended Arizona State University. I am passionate about reading and love to share great books with my students. Porter is a great place to work and my partners on the third grade teaching staff are excellent teachers. I am blessed to work with each of them. My door is always open. I believe that close communication between parents and school is the key to a successful school year. I can be reached by phone or email.
