My name is Leslie Bennett King.  I am the school counselor at Edgewood Elementary School.  I am a lifelong resident of Selma, AL and a 1993 graduate of Selma High School.  After graduation I attended Wallace College Selma and Judson College in Marion Al, where I received a Bachelor’s Degree in Psychology with a minor in Social Work.  I then went to Alabama State University for my Master’s Degree in General Counseling and finished my Educational Specialist Degree in School Counseling from Auburn University Montgomery & Alabama State University.

I have been employed with the Selma City Schools since January 1997.  I began working as a Parent Facilitator, I later worked with the Even Start Family Literacy Program and I have been serving in my current position for the last 19 years. 

I enjoy working as an Edgewood Busy Bee and look forward to seeing your child as we all strive toward EDGEWOOD EXCELLENCE!!
