Children learn as they play. Most importantly, in play children learn how to learn.

It’s a Great Day to Be a Jaguar! I am Leslie Thompson-Love, and I am pleased to serve as principal of Just 4 Developmental Laboratory! This is my twentieth year with Mobile County Public School System. Before becoming principal, I served in many leadership capacities, including assistant principal, school improvement specialist, Title I Facilitator, ARI Reading Coach, and intervention specialist for Mobile County Public School System. Even with these amazing leadership experiences, I will always be a teacher at heart. My educational background includes a Bachelor of Science in Elementary and Early Childhood Education from the University of Mobile, a Master of Education also from the University of Mobile, a Certificate of Advanced Graduate Studies in Educational Leadership from Alabama State University and I am completing the Educational Specialist in Educational Leadership program at Jacksonville State University. 

I am blessed to be the mother of two extraordinary young men, Chase and Chandler. They are the loves of my life. 

 I view education as a life-long process and expect to continue to learn much about the uniqueness of JUST 4 and the community this year and in the years to come. Most importantly, students are at the center of all school-related decisions. I am eager to unite my experience, openness to learning, and child-centered approach to support our students. Because the relationships between families and the school are vital to the success of our students, I encourage you to become involved in every way possible. I look forward to an amazing year with you and your children.

I am privileged to lead Just 4 Developmental Laboratory and the many talented teachers and students! My goal is to provide a supportive climate and culture at Just 4 that is conducive to teaching and learning. By doing so, each individual student and teacher can experience growth to their highest potential.

I look forward to interacting with all stakeholders in our school community this year! 


Kind Regards, 

Leslie Thompson-Love
