Welcome to Fashion and Foods and Nutrition Class
My name is Mrs. Lesly and this is my third year at Belleville High School. This will be my ninth year as a teacher. Before I came to the Belleville school district, I taught at New Brunswick High School for six years. My certifications include Comprehensive Family and Consumer Science, K-5, and Middle School Science. Before I was a teacher, I worked in the garment and home sewing industry for fifteen years. I received my undergraduate degree in Design and Merchandising from Drexel University.
Last year i worked with my fabulous students on the costumes for the Belleville High School performance of The Little Mermaid. I have also done free lance work for the Butterick Pattern Company and costumes for shows at West Orange and New Brunswick High School including Miss Saigon, Shrek, Two by Two and A Mid Summer Night's Dream.
I look forward to teaching your children skills they will use not only this year but for a lifetime.
Please see the individual class pages I have created for more specific information about that class.
