Mrs. Leslie Marquis is a 4th year Math & Science teacher here at Fort Kent Community High school and has worked in education for 10 years. She currently teaches Math I to 9th graders, Anatomy & Physiology I & II for 12th graders in our Pleasant Street Academy program, Anatomy & Physiology I for 12th graders, and Finite Math/Statistics to 12th graders. She is a co-leader of Link Crew and the 12th Grade Student Assistance Team member!
She attended the University of Montana and University of Maine where she graduated with a Bachelor of Science in Animal Science and received a Masters of Science in Reproductive Biology from the University of Idaho.
After graduating from the University of Idaho she worked at The Jackson Laboratory in Bar Harbor doing neuroscience research. When school groups would visit the lab she would volunteer to give talks and demonstrations. That experience as well as coaching the Hampden Academy Ski Team at the time supported her interest in teaching. Her parents and grandparents were teachers...you could say teaching is in her genetics!
It is no surprise that while in high school her favorite class was Anatomy and Physiology!
When asked what she was most proud of in her career she responded, "I would have to say that I'm most proud when students develop a love for the knowledge they're learning from me!"
Did you know......At the University of Idaho, she worked on a team that cloned the first equine species in the world.
