Mrs. Leppala

I came to Ocala in 1982 from Massachusetts. I am married and have two daughters. I have a very large extended family and have lots of fun with my brothers, sisters, their spouses and all their progeny. The youngest in extended family just turn 2 months old and the oldest (my mother) is 96! Currently, we number more than 50 members of our family and are adding more every year. Between my youngest daughter's involvement in dance and my own explorations of art and technology, I am keenly aware of the temperament and skillset that is needed to develop and grow as an artist So, it makes sense to me that I am teaching computers at a magnet school for the arts. This job allows me to combine several parts of my life that I treasure most, technology, arts and of course, children. Watching children learn is extremely satisfying for me. There is nothing better than to see the spark in their eyes, hear the joy in their voices as they uncover new concepts and gain greater understanding of the world around them.
