All About Ms. Lepkowsky I have been teaching for 8 years and it is truly my passion. I have taught for 7 years in Long Island, New York and 3 years here at Franklin Academy. I am originally from New Jersey, went to college in New York, and stayed there until last year when I moved to Florida permanently. I love the warm weather and beaches here in Florida. My hobbies include reading, going out on the boat, riding a motorcycle and decorating. But most importantly, I enjoy the smiles and laughter that make up my classroom.
