Meet the Fifth Grade Team


Hello, my name is Ms. Brown and I am the grade level chair for fifth grade and this is my fifth year teaching. Residing from Jonesboro, Georgia, I am a product of Clayton County Public Schools! Being able to give back to the community and educate the future of tomorrow is an honor.  I received my Bachelor’s and Master’s degree from Georgia State University in Early Childhood Education with endorsements in ESOL and Mathematics. I enjoy being with family and friends during my spare time. I am thrilled and ready to have a successful school year with your students! 


My name is Mrs. Destine Booth.  I am married and the mother of two boys, age 1 and 6.  I have more than ten years of experience working with children and I am a current board member of a nonprofit organization focused on at-risk youth.  I truly believe that education is the great equalizer and that all children can learn. I hold two Bachelor’s degrees and I am currently pursuing a Masters in Special Education with certification in Applied Behavioral Analysis. 

Greetings, My name is Mrs. Layne. I have a passion for teaching children in all areas. I’m dedicated at making sure every child succeeds. I enjoy traveling, shopping, reading and spending time with my family. I have been teaching for several of years, however, this is my first year at Lee Street Elementary. I am elated of having the opportunity to work with such amazing students and I am excited to see what the year unfolds.


Hello, My name is Ms. Malone. I am beyond excited to be teaching 5th grade.  Currently, I hold a Bachelor’s of Science degree from Paine College in Early Childhood Education. During my matriculation at Paine College, I discovered a strong passion for Spanish. Therefore, I took extra courses to become a fluent speaker. Although this is my third year officially teaching, I have plenty of experience working with young children. I live by the quote, “Each one, reach one, teach one.” I truly believe that everyone has the ability to learn and I am elated to be afforded the opportunity to work with each student to address his/her individual needs. I am excited to see the great things that will prevail at Lee Street Elementary.
