Welcome to 2nd grade!  My name is Leighton Caldwell, and  I am so happy to be your 2nd grade teacher for the 2021-2022 school year. This will begin my 6th year of teaching and my 2nd year at Hominy Valley.  I’ve taught Kindergarten, 1st, 3rd, and 4th grade.  I grew up in Raleigh, NC where my family still lives.  I am an Appalachian State graduate with a degree in Elementary Education!  I started my teaching journey in Raleigh for a few years.  My husband, Logan, and I moved to Blacksburg, VA for his medical school, VCOM, and then had the opportunity to come back to Candler where he grew up!  We have a precious pup named Kaya.  We love to hike, cook, and travel!  Visit our class website if you would like to learn a little more about my journey!  I am so excited for the AWESOME school year ahead!!
